About

Advantage Health Systems Hospice is an up and coming, locally owned and operated organization. We are seeking compassionate, creative individuals looking to volunteer their precious time to care for our patients and their loved ones throughout San Diego County.

Hospice Volunteers are an integral part of our interdisciplinary team at Advantage, working together with our staff to meet the needs of our patients and families. Volunteers provide support in many ways:

  • Help enhance the patient's quality of life through companionship
  • Complete creative legacy projects with patients and loved ones
  • Reduce the family's stress by offering caregiver respite
  • Assist with household tasks or errands
  • Provide bereavement support after a patient dies through phone calls, support groups and visits
  • Help with administrative work at our office

Every hospice volunteer has something significant to contribute, and we welcome and encourage new ideas.
