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.
Our volunteers are a critical part of our care team, serving our patients and their families in both direct care and supporting roles. However you choose to volunteer at Guardian Hospice, there is a place for you. Whether you want to work directly with our patients and families, or in another role, you can make a difference in someone's life!
Guardian Hospice volunteers give unselfishly of their time and talents to assist others. Our volunteers are the heartbeat of hospice care, providing hope and support to patients, their families, and hospice staff. Few things are more rewarding than offering your time and energy to care for others.
"The purpose of life is not to be happy. It is to be useful, to be honorable, to be compassionate, and to have it make some difference that you have lived and lived well."--Ralph Waldo Emerson
