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.

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 patient care 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

-Light house keeping

-Exercises and activities with patients at the Facility/Board and Cares.

These simple yet heartfelt tasks are why hospice volunteers are such an essential part of the Arbor Vitae experience.

1. Fill out and return the volunteer application
2. Scheduled interview/Orientation during normal business hours
3. Complete background check
