Wildfires are devastating communities across California, causing more than 300,000 people to evacuate their homes and threatening many more. The Camp Fire in Northern California -- one of three blazing across the state -- is the most destructive in state history. We want to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you find access to shelter. And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know the most effective ways to contribute.
Comprehensive Hospice and Palliative Care is looking for volunteers in the West Valley to be with our patients who have a life-limiting illness. Volunteers provide companionship by doing life review and reminiscing, reading, playing games and sometimes, just hanging out. Volunteers can provide respite for caregivers, times when someone is needed to sit with the patient while the caregiver leaves for short periods in a mini-getaway to refresh their spirit.
Volunteers bring a special type of comfort to these folks, a focused and healing presence by coming in without an agenda, other than being there for the patient.
Volunteers do not lift, drive or medicate. They comfort, love and encourage.
We will provide the thorough training, you will provide the compassion and heart.
Thank you for your willingness to do this very special work!
