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 Alzheimer's patients in our Silverado Assisted Living Community. The main difference in visiting Alzheimer’s patients is that they are limited in their ability to verbally and coherently communicate. These patients require volunteers with patience and ability to connect through presence not typical conversation. Your visits become more about the activities you do together rather than the conversation. They are often very confused and unable to hold regular conversation.We need volunteers who are willing to read the paper or a book to the patient, play & listen to soothing music, talk, bring flowers from a garden, share photos, or just sit quietly and be the gift of presence for them. If you are intrested please reply to this opportunity.

It is our mission to affirm the cycle of life by enhancing the quality of living for those at the end of life. The Silverado standard is to care compassionately for patients and families and to empower those we serve to have quality of life options that afford them comfort and dignity.
Silverado Hospice honors the value of each life by empowering the patient and family to make supported choices in end-of-life care, enhancing comfort, relieving suffering and supporting effective grieving. We believe that Hospice patients have the right to continue life to the fullest extent possible according to their circumstances, and in fostering opportunities for growth and fulfillment. We further recognize patients and families decision-making rights in relation to continuing medical treatments and their right to withdraw treatment whose benefits are outweighed by their burdens. Silverado believes in equal opportunity and non-discrimination for our clients, our associates, and our community.
