Volunteer at local hospice
Nurses In Touch Hospice Care invites community members to volunteer.
Hospice volunteers are always in demand and have a huge impact on helping families that struggle to deal with a loved one’s illness and death. Volunteer tasks include reading to a patient, shopping and other errands, lawn care, cooking, light housework, caregiver relief, writing letters/cards, and helping in the local offices.
Volunteer Appreciation Week is being celebrated this week, April 6-12. Volunteers bring comfort, love, and respect to those they help.
In prior years, retirement allotted individuals time and energy to donate to organizations of their choice. Unfortunately, many people are finding the need to work longer before retirement. Those that do retire are oftentimes called upon to help their children or grandchildren, or become caregivers to their own parents as the “baby boomers” generation hits their elder years. The few who can dedicate time and talent to volunteering are valuable and greatly appreciated.
