About

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.

NOTE: This is an unpaid volunteer position with no expectation of receiving payment.

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...

Our Administrative Volunteers help in our office with filing, collating and other office duties as well as helping with special events. Computer skills are a plus!

Our Bereavement Volunteers offer their support during the bereavement period without prior assignment to the family and loved ones. Bereavement Volunteers work with the Bereavement Coordinator to provide emotional comfort through visits, calls, cards, facilitating support groups and during special days and events.

Training:

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.
