Hospice by the Bay

Thank you for your interest in volunteering with Hospice by the Bay, but due to the current COVID pandemic, our 2020 volunteer trainings have been cancelled until further notice. Presently, our current volunteers are not making in-person visits to patients/families, and it is uncertain as to when that will change. Meanwhile, we still invite you to inquire about volunteering or to apply as a volunteer on our agency website, HBTB.org/volunteers. We will contact your directly.

Bring needed comfort and peace into the lives of those with a terminal illness. Come join our Complementary Care team of volunteers. Utilize your therapeutic skills to assist with symptom management and improve the quality of life for hospice patients. We are looking for certified practitioners to provide energy work sessions. Must have a Masters Level in Reiki or certification in Healing Touch.

Description

What makes Hospice by the Bay unique! It was founded by volunteers as a non-profit, end-of-life healthcare provider in 1975. It was created by the community to serve the community. As the second oldest hospice in the U.S., Hospice By The Bay has the depth of experience to understand the medical, practical, emotional and spiritual care patients and their families need during the end of life experience. From its grassroots foundation by community volunteers (then named Hospice of Marin), Hospice By The Bay remains at the vanguard of the hospice industry and a premier, regional provider of end-of-life care.
