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 hospice services at Encompass Hospice are designed to better the lives of terminally ill patients and to encourage comfort and provide dignity and peace during end-of-life stages. Our compassionate, highly trained team is driven by integrity and respect to support the physical, spiritual and emotional needs of both our patients and their loved ones.
We inspire confidence during end-of-life care by providing services in our patients’ homes -- whether that is a personal home, nursing home, assisted living community, independent living community or other location.
Our volunteers play a very active role in our plan of care, providing not only services such as companionship and emotional support to patients and their families, but also participating in administrative tasks in the office, helping with bereavement, making supportive phone calls from home, much more.
