About

BECOME A SILVERADO HOSPICE VOLUNTEER!

Silverado Hospice is looking for volunteers to join our team. Our patient's are terminally ill and in their final stages of life. As a Hospice Volunteer you will be visiting patients in their own homes, Silverado communities or other facilities. You'll be assigned to a patient as close to your home as possible. We need volunteers who are willing to read to our patients, hold their hand, and learn life experience by listening to the narratives and histories of hospice patients.At Silverado Hospice, we hold sacred the end-of-life passage that is journeyed by our patients and their loved ones. Volunteers play an integral part in how we compassionately meet their needs.

As a Hospice Volunteer you will visit patients in their own homes, Silverado communities or other facilities. You will have the opportunity to offer support for all non-medical needs such as providing companionship and socialization, running errands and assisting with family needs. Are you willing to be a compassionate witness to those who are among the most vulnerable in our world, to hold their hands, to listen to their life stories? If so, please respond to this posting and begin your journey with Silverado Hospice as a Volunteer today!

Here are a few Silverado videos that speak to our mission, please have a look:

Every patient is different but most requests are volunteers visiting patients during meal times (9am,12pm, and 5pm Monday -Sunday) and/or for 2-3 hours to run errands for patients. You and family/patient would coordiante your schedules.

WE RESPECTFULLY ONLY ASK FOR SERIOUS VOLUNTEER APPLICATNTS. APPLICATION PROCESS CAN BE LENGTHY AND WE WANT TO MAKE SURE OUR TIME AWAY FROM PATIENT CARE IS TO ENSURE MORE VISITS WITH PATIENTS IN THE LONG RUN.
