As they enter hospice and reach their final days, the men and women who served their country deserve dignity and respect. Sometimes, the best volunteer support for a veteran comes from a veteran. Be part of our volunteer team, provide support and comfort to hospice patients and their families. Hospice volunteers provide companionship, support, relief to care givers, and a chance to be heard. Bring your talents to UC Davis Hospice and volunteer!
Training for all volunteers is provided through the Sacramento Hospice Consortium. The training schedule can be found at sachospice.org.
About UC Davis Hospice Program
3630 Business Drive, Sacramento, CA 95820, US
For over 35 years, UC Davis Hospice Program provides care for terminally ill patients. It is not a place, but rather an approach to health care emphasizing symptom management while helping patients and families to cope with psychosocial and spiritual issues which accompany the dying process.
Hospice care is provided by physician-directed teams of nurses, social workers, home health aides, chaplains, therapists, volunteers, and bereavement coordinators who are sensitive to the local population's cultural and lifestyle diversity. Volunteers become an important part of the team, with the ability to attend rounds and care for patients as well as their families.
We'll work with your schedule.
