Do you have a passion to help people who are grieving or going through a recent loss?

We are seeking compassionate and caring individuals looking to volunteer their precious time in making supportive follow-up calls to bereaved families and patient's loved ones.

Hospice Volunteers are an integral part of our interdisciplinary team at Advantage Hospice, working together with our staff to meet the needs of our patients and families.

Bereavement volunteers provide support in offering active listening, assistance and other supportive services to bereaved families/loved ones. Volunteers will have the possibility to work from home once fully trained and have the potential to grow in assisting in bereavement support groups. Every hospice volunteer has something special and significant to contribute, and we welcome and encourage new ideas.

Description

The focus of Hospice relies on the belief that each of us has the right to die pain-free and with dignity, and that our loved ones will receive the necessary support to allow us to do so.

Hospice focuses on caring, not curing and in most cases care is provided in the person’s home.

Hospice care also is provided in freestanding hospice centers, hospitals, nursing homes and other long-term care facilities.

Hospice services are available to patients of any age, religion, race, or illness.

Hospice care is covered under Medicare, Medi-Cal, most private insurance plans, HMOs, and other managed care organizations.
