About

Unique Volunteer Opportunity for Medical/Nursing Students to gain firsthand experience with the elderly and the medical needs that present themselves within the hospice population. Gain knowledge in a wide range of disciplines, while spending quality time with patients and providing compassionate companionship, offering a listening ear, reading to them, creating life reviews, sharing music and your hobbies and so much more.

Volunteers are a valuable part of the care that Sea Crest Hospice provides. Our flexible program welcomes people from all over Orange County and from all walks of life to join the Sea Crest Hospice Team. We have a place for you that will meet your busy schedule, location and specific strengths or interests. We are open to exploring volunteer internships, as well.

The volunteer provides a variety of support services and companionship to patients and their families in private homes, skilled nursing facilities, assisted living communities or in the office setting.

Our Hospice Patient Care Volunteers participate in a variety of ways to bring care, comfort and support to Sea Crest patients and their families. You might just hold their hand; just provide a listening ear ; share stories and memories; walk their dog; deliver flowers; run errands; sing songs together; write letters; read books; visit a Veteran; watch TV with them and much more...

All Sea Crest volunteers go through an extensive training program that focuses on what terminally ill patients and their families may experience and teaches volunteers how to provide care, as part of the hospice team. Our training will give you the knowledge and skills you need to be confident and comfortable in your new role.
