As this natural disaster unfolds, the staff here at VolunteerMatch is doing its part to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you are prepared and safe. And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know about the most effective ways to contribute.
At Caris Healthcare, we aim to reach each and every hospice pt where they are. We want to make sure that their needs are met as they are nearing end of life. We have 3 different types of volunteers that are needed at Caris. 1, Administrative volunteers - This is where you are able to help with needs within the hospice office. Filing, calling, making copies, etc. 2, Special project - We like to share gifts with our patients. We are in need of blankets, pillows, toiletries, holiday gifts, baby dolls, etc. 3, Patient care - This is an opportunity for you to provide companionship with our patients directly. You are able to sit with patients and not provide any hands on care, but just to spend time with them. Also being a part of activities like BINGO!
