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.
Are you caring, compassionate and dependable? Do you want to make a difference in someone's life? If you answered yes to these questions, then Beacon Hospice is the place for you to share the gift of your presence! Typically, the needs are simple-companionship and friendship, emotional support and someone to listen. The small things you can do make an enormous difference in a person's life. Volunteers are trained and supervised by a volunteer coordinator and supported by other members of the patient's care team. The Beacon Hospice philiosophy is that all patients should receive the highest quality end of life care as possible and be able to choose the manner in which they want to live out their lives. Our volunteers play an important part in the delivery of this extraordinary care. Volunteers can assist patients by reading, playing cards, listening to music, sitting quietly holding their hand or just being present! Volunteers can also help by knitting or crocheting blankets for our patients, or creating Chart A Life posters. Our office serves many communities, stretching from Fall River and New Bedford, to Brockton, East Bridgewater, and Wrentham, MA. Our patients await the gift of your presence. Veterans are encouraged to join our team! Please contact Erin Hassell at 508-324-1900 ext. 108 or firstname.lastname@example.org
