Spanish-speaking volunteers are a plus. Hospice in-home volunteers provide support and companionship for Hospice patients and their families. Our Wilshire Hospice Volunteer Training is designed around providing a soulful opportunity for personal growth while equipping you with the skills and support you will need for a meaningful volunteer experience. *During this time of COVID-19 and heightened awareness of infectious disease protocol, every effort is being made to supply our volunteers with the tools and education they need to safely volunteer in our community. Volunteers are also needed to call and offer support to patients and caregivers, providing additional links to the Hospice team, work that may be done from home.
