Kaiser Permanente Hospice Volunteers are unique people who have special places in their hearts that motivate them to provide voluntary services to our Hospice patients and their family members.

Hospice Volunteers are thoroughly trained in hospice care and are members of the Interdisciplinary Care Team. Hospice Volunteers are trained in infection control and equipped with proper PPE to conduct socially distanced in-person visits with patients and their families. Volunteer tasks may also include:
  • Giving relief to family caregivers in the home to allow them some special time to rest and relax.
  • Running errands and grocery shopping.
  • Sharing a hobby or interest.
  • Reading to the patient, writing letters or cards, and making telephone calls.
  • Preparing light meals and menu planning.
  • Listening to music together.
  • Visiting with the patient and family.
