Do you have a kind heart, compassionate presence, and want to make a difference? Become a hospice volunteer!
Sojourn Hospice is actively seeking volunteers to become a part of our caring hospice team. Our volunteers serve patients facing a life-limiting illness and their families, offering support by:
- Holding conversation/being a listening ear
- Sitting in companionable silence together
- Reading aloud to someone
- Playing music for someone
- Tending a garden, walking a dog, etc.
- Giving a family caregiver a break by sitting with their loved one
Volunteer schedules are flexible and based on the volunteer's availability. We serve patients in the following counties: Santa Clara, San Mateo, Alameda, San Francisco. Volunteers are able to make visits in their preferred areas.
Our volunteers receive in-depth training and on-going support. Our training classes are offered periodically, and the next class will begin in June, 2018. To find out more about the application process and reserve a spot in this class, please contact our volunteer coordinator at firstname.lastname@example.org or 408-324-0700.
The work our volunteers provide is deeply needed and appreciated. Volunteers are an extremely valuable part of our team. Contact us to learn more about this life-changing opportunity.
*There are also opportunities for those that prefer to volunteer in our office, serving as administrative support. Please contact us for more details.
