AccentCare Hospice is looking for Volunteers to visit patients in Morgan Hill and South San Jose.

As a AccentCare Hospice Volunteer, you'll help patients and family members by offering emotional support and companionship. Volunteer activities with patients include: Reading out loud, listening to music, writing letters, listening to life stories, but most of all, becoming a friend with someone dealing with a terminal illness. You will work directly with our medical team, our doctors, nurses, social workers, and music therapists to ensure that the patient receives optimal care. Seasons Hospice will provide training, and opportunities for volunteers to attend optional weekly educational meetings.

If you are looking for a rewarding volunteer opportunity, then this is for you!

Training to be a AccentCare Hospice Volunteer is extensive but the time is well spent if you have an interest in hospice or healthcare.
