Continuum Hospice seeks volunteers to visit hospice patients who live in Marin. Hospice volunteering will give you an opportunity to truly make a difference in another's life. Your smile, your listening, your attention and compassionate presence will bring the important gift of connection and affirmation to someone in their last phase of life. Many of our volunteers read out loud, play music, or accompany patients to community activities in their facility. They will sometimes write legacy letters, have conversation, or just sit in companionable silence. Some volunteers provide respite for the caregiving family member who needs an hour or two break. You will receive orientation to hospice concepts as well as training for your patient visits. Our office is in Petaluma but your orientation and training will be scheduled to fit days, times, and a place convenient to you, and you will be assigned to visit a patient who lives a distance convenient and comfortable for you to travel.
