San RafaelSan Rafael, CA 94901


Continuum Hospice seeks volunteers in San Rafael, and all cities in Marin to make friendly visits to people on hospice. 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. We schedule orientation and training for days, times, and a location convenient for you. If interested, contact our Volunteer Coordinator, Monica Jones.
