About

Arbor Vitae Hospice is seeking patient care volunteers throughout the Inland Empire to fill the gap between loved ones and professional caregivers-- provide the ultimate gift of companionship to our patients and much-needed caregiver relief to their loved ones. We are also in need of office administrative volunteers.

Healthcare experience is not required. This is a great opportunity to gain hands on experience in the medical field or to just give back to our community! Every volunteer will receive free, comprehensive training & support to help you enjoy a positive and rewarding volunteering experience! Volunteers will learn hospice philosophy, caring for the terminally ill, grief & loss education, healthy & safety precautions and much more.

The tasks of volunteers include:

-Staying with patients so family members can get a much-needed rest

-Running errands for patients and families

-Reading

-Singing or playing music to patients

-Keeping vigil with patients in their final hours

-Providing a friendly visit to lift a patient's spirits
