Sutter Care at Home - Hospice

Compassionate Heart and Hands

To become a hospice volunteer at Sutter Care at Home the greatest gift you can offer is your time, your compassion, caring nature, and your willingness to listen. Training and ongoing support are provided to all volunteers, so experience is not required. Volunteers are trained to enhance the overall goal of meeting the physical, emotional and practical needs of hospice patients and their families.

Volunteering can be as simple as sitting by the bedside, listening with compassion, playing music, reading a book, and as needed, offering support, providing relief for the family members and caregivers. Volunteers do not provide clinical or personal care. ** Due to the pandemic, volunteers are only visiting patients who live in their own home, they are running errands, like grocery shopping, or calling or sending cards to hospice patients and their caregivers, giving support and helping to combat social isolation.**

Volunteers visit hospice patients in homes and care facilities in San Mateo County, anywhere from Daly City to Palo Alto and along the coast, based on volunteer proximity and availability. Volunteers can provide respite to the caregiver and be a caring companion and compassionate listener to both patients and families. or assist with routine tasks and errands when appropriate. We also have office volunteer positions, and opportunities to work with our children's bereavement coordinator, as well.

We also welcome certified professionals who wish to provide massage/Reiki/art/music/animal therapy. Contact the Volunteer Program Coordinator, Jennifer Fisher, to receive an application and learn more about our comprehensive and enriching online training. Email: fishej2@sutterhealth.org
