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.
Community Home Care & Hospice is committed to providing supportive, palliative and loving care to terminally ill clients and their families through an interdisciplinary team.
The services you will give as a Community Home Care & Hospice volunteer will profoundly improve the quality of our patient's lives. Friendly visits enable families to keep their loved ones at home, around the people they love, and the things they love. Assisting with errands helps a tired family caregiver cope with their many challenges and allows them time with their loved one. Simply holding a patient's hand can ease their mind and console their spirit. Volunteering takes no advanced medical training or great commitment. It can be as simple as reading to, or spending time with a patient a few hours a week. It's small deeds of kindness that so profoundly enhance the lives of our patients and those who love them.
