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 must attend a comprehensive orientation to gain the knowledge you will need to work with terminally ill patients. These are currently held online via Zoom and/or via self-study.
In order to comply with the State of California’s COVID requirements, all volunteers must have one of the two items below.
- Be fully vaccinated with booster (proof required) with no testing requirements
- Apply for a VITAS vaccine exemption (reviewed on a case-by-case basis) with proof of weekly negative tests required
