ORGANIZATION: Sutter Care at Home - Hospice

Compassionate Heart and Hands

Are you a quilter and would like to bring joy and comfort to hospice patients? Sutter Care at Home Hospice in San Mateo would love to partner with individual quilters or guilting guilds to bring quilts to those on our hospice service, living on the peninsula. We also provide "fidget quilts" for our patients living with dementia. Fidget quilts help to calm "busy," anxious hands. If you or your quilting guild would like to donate your time to this project, SCAH can provide the fabric.

To become a hospice volunteer at Sutter Care at Home the greatest gift you can offer is your time, your compassion, and caring nature. If you are interested in visiting hospice patients, hospice volunteer training and ongoing support are provided to 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. Quilting volunteers, are not required to go through our formal training program, however. For more information about being a quilting volunteer, or a patient volunteer, please reach out!

** We also welcome certified professionals who wish to provide massage/Reiki/art/music/animal therapy and are looking for Spanish speaking volunteers **

Contact the Volunteer Program Coordinator, Jennifer Fisher, to receive an application and learn more about our comprehensive and enriching online, self-paced training. Email: Jennifer.Fisher@sutterhealth.org Phone: 650-454-4372

Mission Statement

Sutter Care at Home enhances the health and well being of the people in the communities we serve through a not-for-profit commitment to compassion and excellence in home-based services and products.

Description

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

Volunteers may stay with the patient to give the caregiver some time away or time to rest and they can be a caring companion and compassionate listener to both patients and families. While volunteers cannot provide clinical or personal care, they may be able to assist with routine tasks and errands.

Requirements: Volunteers receive 24 hours of training, health clearance and a background check, and attend monthly educational meetings. They must work closely with Volunteer Program Coordinator as members of the hospice team.
