About

Sojourn Hospice and Palliative Care is looking for volunteers to provide the gift of companionship for those with a serious life-limiting illness and to provide care-giver relief for their loved ones.

Volunteers are a very integral part of our team. You will make social visits, read to patients, help with journaling, take them outside, make a light meal, provide pet therapy and/or healing touch. Visits can be arranged for a day and time that works best for both you and the patient.

Our patients are throughout San Diego County (North County Coastal, North County Inland, Central County - between 8 and 56, downtown/Mission Valley, East County and South Bay.

You will receive free in-depth training about hospice and the role of the volunteer. No prior experience required. Just a willingness and open heart to help those in need.

Speaking Spanish is an extra bonus.

Your few hours a week will have such an impact on the lives of our terminally ill patients, their families and for you.

Please contact Phyllis, Volunteer Coordinator

When contacting, please provide your phone number and email address in note.
