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.
Clarehouse provides a loving home, quality end of life care, and access to hospice services for people in need.
Clarehouse is a loving home for terminally ill people, providing living space, practical care and access to hospice services - devoted to the care of dying people and to the support of their loved ones. Clarehouse aims to meet the need of people who wish to die at home but lack the caregiver necessary to achieve that goal.
The Clarehouse campus supports our vision of a warm, loving, homelike environment for end-of-life care in a natural setting. The non-institutional, non-clinical feel of our home is coupled with the great compassion and experience of our (paid and unpaid!) staff to provide the next-best thing to home for our guests. In addition, our cooperative relationships with local hospices enable us to fill a critical gap in care without duplicating available services. We believe care of the dying to be an act of mercy that our community will continue to embrace and support as a worthwhile charitable endeavor. Clarehouse services are free of charge.
