Sutter Care at Home - Hospice

Veterans

Have you or someone in your family served in the US Armed Forces? Are you willing to sit by the bedside of our Veteran patients, honoring their service, or just being a compassionate presence? You can help them to recollect their stories, bringing meaning to the sacrifice they made to serve our country, and whenever possible help heal soul injuries of war just by listening.

No prior hospice experience is necessary. We provide you with an extensive training and ongoing support.

To become a hospice volunteer at Sutter Care at Home the greatest gift one can offer is their time, caring nature and willingness to be present. Training and ongoing support are provided to all volunteers, so experience is not required. Volunteers are trained to enhance the overall goal of meeting the physical, emotional, spiritual and practical needs of hospice patients and their families.

It's a great opportunity to serve while learning new skills and enhancing existing ones. Volunteers may stay with the patient to give the caregiver some time away or time to rest and they can be a caring companion and compassionate listener to both patients and families. While volunteers cannot provide clinical or personal care, they may be able to assist with routine tasks and errands.

Our requirements: Volunteers receive 24 hours of self-paced, online training, health clearance and a background check is done through Sutter Health. Our volunteers are required to receive or show verification of an annual flu shot and Tuberculin skin test or blood test, provide immunization records or titers showing immunity to MMR (measles, mumps and rubella) and Varicella, show proof of TDAP (tetanus, diphtheria, and pertussis) and COVID-19 vaccinations, complete a drug screen and a health screening, consent to a criminal background check, and submit a copy of current driver’s license and auto insurance. Sutter will provide health screening and any necessary tests or vaccinations. A minimum of 1-2 hours of volunteering per week and a 1-2 year commitment is required. They must work closely with Volunteer Program Coordinator as members of the hospice team, attending monthly support meeting and visiting patients once a week.
