Sutter Care at Home is looking for Certified Massage Therapy Volunteers for Hospice Patients.
We serve patients all the way from South San Francisco down through the Peninsula. We ask for one hour a week and match people based on their availability and location preferences.

To volunteer, you should provide provide proof of completed training in reiki or massage therapy. We provide Hospice Training and ongoing support to all volunteers, so hospice experience is not required. Our upcoming one day training is in Jnuary 2017.
Being a hospice volunteer is a great opportunity to practice compassion and discover your skills and learn new ones during the end-of-life care. Volunteers are trained to enhance the overall goal of meeting the physical, emotional, spiritual and practical needs of hospice patients and their families.
While volunteer cannot provide clinical or personal care, s/he can be a caring companion and compassionate listener to both patients and families.
