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, with the help of our amazing volunteers, quality dementia care to our hospice patients.

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

December 5, 2017 6:30 pm to 7:30 pm Information meeting to learn about the program.

January 13, 2018 8:30 am to 1:30 pm Workshop #1 (lunch included).

January 27, 2018 8:30 am to 1:30 pm Workshop #2 (lunch included).

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. In addition, we would like all dementia volunteers to participate in training opportunities throughout the year.

As a new volunteer, you will also be required to complete an online training for basic homecare hospice knowledge. This training will take 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.

If you are interested in attending the information meeting on December 5, please send an email to Nikki Tildesley (nikkit@hopehospice.com) or Jill Smith (jills@hopehospice.com) by November 17th. You will not need to commit to participating until after the December meeting.
