Sutter Care at Home - Hospice

Compassionate Heart and Hands

Being a Spanish speaking hospice volunteer at Sutter Care at Home, the greatest gift you can offer is your time, your compassion, caring nature, and your willingness to listen.

Volunteering can be as simple as sitting by the bedside, social visits, listening with compassion, playing music, reading a book, and as needed, offering support, providing a break for the family members and caregivers. Volunteers do not provide clinical or personal care.

We usually ask for 1-2 volunteer hours per week, and work with patients and families to accommodate a morning or daytime for visits that would also work for our volunteers.

Volunteers visit hospice patients in homes and care facilities (suspended for now due to pandemic) in San Mateo county, from South San Francisco to Palo Alto and along the Peninsula coast, based on volunteer location proximity and availability.

No prior hospice experience is required. A very comprehensive training and ongoing support are provided to all volunteers to enhance the overall goal of meeting the physical, emotional, and practical needs of hospice patients and their families.

Besides volunteers that speak other languages, we also welcome certified professionals who wish to provide reiki/ massage/art/music/animal therapy.
