About

You are invited to consider becoming trained as a dementia care volunteer in Hope Hospice's innovative new program, Living With Dementia. The goal of this program is to offer increased well-being and supportive friendship to those who are affected by dementia.

Here are the details regarding the training program and time commitment:

August 18th 9.30am-3.30pm
All meetings will be held at Hope Hospice (6377 Clark Ave. Suite 100, Dublin, CA)

Your time commitment as a dementia care volunteer will vary depending on your availability and patient need.

As a new volunteer, you will also be required to complete an online training for basic homecare hospice knowledge. This training will take approximately 8-10 hours at your convenience. Additionally, there are health screening requirements and an orientation that is separate from the dementia training program. A criminal background check will also be obtained. The start-up details can seem rather heavy but in the end you will be able to experience personal rewards and satisfaction as you engage with our aging adults in the community.
