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.
Volunteers are the heart of the hospice team. Hospice volunteers provide the extra love and care our patients and their families need at this time in their life.
The "presence of being" is a special gift that is most appreciated by patients as well as family members.
We promise to care for the mind, body and spirit accepting people for who they are and where they are.
The gift of your time, the ability to be there for someone when they most need to lean on someone is so very precious. It might be running errands, preparing a simple meal, providing a few hours of your time to relieve family members or perhaps a phone call to let them know they are not alone.
