Provide breaks for the exhibitors by watching layouts 5. Assist the store owners with crowd control – maybe helping people line up, opening doors, or other simple assistance 6. Being extra sets of eyes to ensure that the event proceeds smoothly and safely for all involved 7. Assist with any visitor activities – an “I Spy” or “Guess what this item is” for example 8. Be a friendly, happy greeter who shares the enthusiasm for the event
1500 Patient Visiting Volunteer
Gentiva Hospice Volunteer Category: Elderly
Hospice is a compassionate, patient-centered approach to providing care for people at the end of life. Hospice care is focused on maintaining dignity, increasing quality of life, and providing comfort, including pain and symptom management. Gentiva not only cares for our patients, but offers support for their families as well. As a volunteer for Gentiva, you can make a difference in the lives of the people we serve. After completing our volunteer training course, you will visit patients in their homes (be that a skilled nursing facility or a free standing house), providing companionship and friendly visits. Right now there is a great need for volunteers in Elkhorn, East Troy and Delavan. Volunteers are assigned to visit patients that live in their neighborhood so the burden of travel is minimal. In most situations, visiting hours are flexible and you will be able to visit patients on your schedule, when it is most convenient for you. Visitor volunteers do NOT perform any medical or personal cares and do not transfer patients, administer any medicines, take patients to the bathroom, etc. Your job is just to visit as a friendly neighbor would!
1499 Shelter Advocate
YWCA Rock County Volunteer Category: Women
Every 9 seconds in the US a woman is assaulted or beaten. Most of these women have been isolated from family and friends. They have no one to reach out to and may be afraid to contact law enforcement. Often the voice on the other end of a crisis line can give them the strength they need to seek help. Will you be that voice? The YWCA of Rock County is seeking volunteers to help answer our 24-hr crisis line and assist with clients already in shelter. If you would like the opportunity to help survivors take their next steps, please contact us. Flexible hours, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
