Marin Complementary Care Hospice Volunteer
By the Bay Health
Thank you for your interest in volunteering with By the Bay Health, but due to the current COVID pandemic, Volunteer trainings in 2020 were cancelled. We have been accepting applications continuously throughout the past year, but have not been conducting trainee interviews. We are hopeful to provide one training in fall 2021 when it is safe to conduct classroom sessions in-person, as well as online. We currently welcome new applications, but please be aware that we have a significant number of applicants on the wait-list since March 2020. Applications are processed in the order received, which means your application may not be considered for interview eligibility until 2022.

Our mission is to be the premiere provider of palliative and hospice services for patients and their caregivers needing care and support during the final stages of life. We are dedicated to promoting wellness at the end of life, as well as preventing and treating distressing symptoms or conditions that might otherwise threaten the quality of life for our patients and families. We compassionately provide quality services, sensitive to the values, interests, capabilities and needs of those we serve, in a cost-effective manner and in a variety of settings.
What makes By the Bay Health 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., By The Bay Health 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), By The Bay Health remains at the vanguard of the hospice industry and a premier, regional provider of end-of-life care.
