Wildfires are devastating communities across California, causing more than 300,000 people to evacuate their homes and threatening many more. The Camp Fire in Northern California -- one of three blazing across the state -- is the most destructive in state history. We want to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you find access to shelter. And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know the most effective ways to contribute.
Thank you for considering volunteering with Alacare!
The Alacare Hospice Volunteer Services Program can put your telephone talents to good use!
We are searching for someone who has the ability, and the heart, to help the local office make weekly calls to all our hospice patients and/or their caregivers.
Every Thursday, around mid-morning, a Telephone Support Volunteers calls our Hospice patients and/or caregivers to ensure they have enough supplies for the weekend.
In addition, when there is a weather emergency, our volunteers may call some patients and/or caregivers to ensure their needs are met. Our Telephone Support Volunteers also help make birthday, Christmas, and other special occasion calls!
New volunteers are mentored by the Volunteer Coordinator until they feel comfortable and confident in providing assistance independently. Volunteers are never expected to assist with the personal care of patients and are assigned based on their interests and what tasks they feel they can easily accomplish.
Our volunteers set their own schedules and we work with you to make the most of your talents and time! If you have a heart for volunteering, please contact Alacare to find out more about this and other volunteer opportunities available.
