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.
Our "No One Dies Alone" volunteers will extend caring concern to the patients and community of Transitions LifeCare Hospice by providing and reassuring presence at the bedside of a dying patient who would otherwise be alone. NODA volunteers are an essential part of hospice by joining our staff to ensure that no patient on our services has to face death alone. Our volunteers provide support, companionship, a hand to hold, prayer, and any other form of comfort that may be wanted or needed by the patient or family during the days/hours leading up to their passing.
