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.
It is a fact that about 50% of nursing home residents never receive a visit...from anyone.
How can you help? Crossroads Hospice of Philadelphia is looking for dedicated and compassionate volunteers who would like to offer companionship, socialization and emotional support to people who really need a helping hand.
Our goal is to control the pain and symptoms associated with a terminal illness-physical, emotional, social and spiritual. We offer care where the patient chooses to reside. This can be in the comfort of their own home, nursing home or assisted living facility.
If you are interested in how to become a part of the Crossroads volunteer team, please contact Kimberly Mumper at 215-956-5110 for more information.
