Life Review Volunteer
Create a Life Review with a Hospice Patient

Join the nation's leading provider of Hospice Care and assist patients in documenting their life story. We partnered with a website where you print out questions, ask the patient then enter them into the site. The family received a printed, bound book with their loved one's life story. They also have permanent access to their loved one's records. This can be the most powerful gift to offer patient's families; a documented account of their loved one's life. Help us offer this precious heirloom that can be viewed for generations. A 30 minute training from the website trainer is provided to teach you how to use the easy program.

All volunteers are required to attend a comprehensive orientation to gain the knowledge you will need to work with terminally ill patients.

Upcoming New Volunteer Orientation:

Saturday, June 1st from 8:30 am - 4 pm

Orientation is held at our office located at:
9655 Granite Ridge Dr. Ste. 300
San Diego, CA 92123
