Be a volunteer for Wilshire Hospice - online training

Have you ever wondered what it would be like to volunteer for Hospice? Wilshire Hospice is looking for caring individuals to be Hospice In-Home Volunteers. This rich, in-depth, online training program will be held on Tuesday-Thursday October 13, 14, 15 & 20, 21, 22. Volunteers are needed in all areas of San Luis Obispo County and North Santa Barbara County. Spanish-speaking volunteers are a plus. Hospice in-home volunteers provide support and companionship for Hospice patients and their families. Our Wilshire Hospice Volunteer Training is designed around providing a soulful opportunity for personal growth while equipping you with the skills and support you will need for a meaningful volunteer experience. *During this time of COVID-19 and heightened awareness of infectious disease protocol, every effort is being made to supply our volunteers with the tools and education they need to safely volunteer in our community. Volunteers are also needed to call and offer support to patients and caregivers, providing additional links to the Hospice team, work that may be done from home.

Why Wilshire Hospice?

Serving San Luis Obispo County since 1998, Wilshire Hospice is a local not-for-profit Hospice that offers a comprehensive In-Home Hospice program to terminally ill individuals and their families: including visits from nurses, social workers, spiritual counselors, therapeutic musicians, home health aides, dietitians, grief and bereavement counselors and volunteers. For 22 years, Wilshire Hospice’s goal has been to provide our community with all the things that terminally ill patients and their families need most: freedom from pain, emotional and spiritual support and the ability to control the direction of their own care.
