The 2018 hurricane season has been extraordinarily active in parts of the U.S., with Hurricane Florence currently impacting millions in the Carolinas. 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.
Salmon VNA and Hospice is looking for caring, compassionate individuals to join our volunteer team. You will touch lives in extraordinary ways through this community service opportunity. We are looking for volunteers to visit hospice patients living in Central and Metrowest cities and towns and also our Nursing Facilities in Northbridge, Northborough, Worcester, Westborough, Natick and Sharon. Individuals of all ages and backgrounds are welcome, and no previous hospice or health care experience is needed. As a hospice volunteer, you’ll spend a couple of hours each week providing friendly companionship to one of our patients in their home. Time spent reading a book, writing a letter, hand massaging, relieving caregivers or sitting bedside during vigil visits enhances the quality of life of hospice patients. Your visit can touch the lives of others and offer a caregiver a much-needed break. Donations of flower arrangements, blankets, music, or other sensory items are also welcome.
