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.
Being a Bereavement Volunteer is a unique opportunity to work with patients’ families, after the patient has died.
Calls are made six and twelve months after the patient’s death to low risk family and friends and can be done from the office or volunteer’s home. Bereavement Volunteers will be trained to assess the needs, responses, coping skills, and support systems of the bereaved. Volunteers will then provide documentation to our supportive care team who can follow up, if needed. Bereavement Volunteers can be trained to co-facilitate support groups, workshops, help with memorial services and other educational bereavement events. Bereavement Volunteers may also help with bereavement mailings.
