Hospice Volunteering in Napa
22 people are interested
Continuum Hospice seeks volunteers in Napa and Napa County to make friendly visits to people on hospice. Hospice volunteering will give you an opportunity to truly make a difference in another's life. Your smile, your listening, your attention and compassionate presence will bring the important gift of connection and affirmation to someone in their last phase of life. Many of our volunteers read out loud, play music, or accompany patients to community activities in their facility. They will assist in writing legacy letters, have life-review conversation, or just sit in companionable silence providing a gentle touch of the hand. Some volunteers provide respite for the caregiving family member who needs an hour or two break. You will receive orientation to hospice concepts as well as training for your patient visits. We schedule orientation and training for days, times, and a location convenient for you.
You will be well-supported by the hospice team and greatly appreciated by your patients and their families.
Volunteer Coordinator, Monica Jones, welcomes your questions about how you can become a hospice volunteer.

Continuum Care Hospice’s mission is to provide the terminally ill patient and their loved ones with the support and care they require to live their lives comfortably. Our goal is to provide physical, emotional, and spiritual comfort. We believe that Hospice care should be available to any and all persons with an illness for which there is no cure or for persons who elect not to attempt a cure, resulting in a limited life expectancy.
