Caring for Veteran Hospice Patients

Save to Favorites

Sutter Care at Home - Hospice


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.

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

** Due to the pandemic, and the recent surge, volunteers are running errands, like grocery shopping, or calling, doing video visits or sending cards to hospice patients and their caregivers, giving support and helping to combat social isolation. Crafty and creative volunteers are making fidget quilts for dementia patients or lap quilts for veterans on our service.**

Mission Statement

Sutter Care at Home enhances the health and well being of the people in the communities we serve through a not-for-profit commitment to compassion and excellence in home-based services and products.


To become a hospice volunteer at Sutter Care at Home the greatest gift you can offer is your time, your caring nature, and your willingness to listen. Training and ongoing support are provided to all volunteers, so experience is not required. It's a great opportunity to learn new skills and enhance existing ones. Volunteers are trained to enhance the overall goal of meeting the physical, emotional, spiritual and practical needs of hospice patients and their families.

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.

Requirements: Volunteers receive 24 hours of training, health clearance and a background check, and attend monthly educational meetings. They must work closely with Volunteer Program Coordinator as members of the hospice team.
