Patients who are nearing end of life have a variety of needs that can be filled by volunteers. Some patients have little or no support and are in need of companionship. Volunteer visits can include reading, journaling, helping with hobbies and relieving family members and friends. Volunteers must be at least 18; the commitment is usually 1-2 hours per week. Thorough training is provided. There are patients in or near your town who are awaiting volunteer assistance. Volunteers are also needed to help with clerical duties in our Pleasanton office. If you want to volunteer or get more information, contact Laurie Herbert at Gentiva Hospice at 925 737-0203 or Laurie.Herbert@Gentiva.com.
