Suncrest Hospice

  • 2 people are interested

Suncrest Hospice is looking for volunteers to join the Suncrest Team as we provide excellent care and support to our hospice patients and their families in their homes and care facilities. We serve families in the Sacramento area including parts of Yolo and Placer Counties.

The philosophy of hospice care is to provide comfort and the highest quality of life that one can achieve at end of life. Through an interdisciplinary team: nurse, nurse assistant, social worker, chaplain and volunteers, we help the patient and family walk through their journey.

Currently there is a need for volunteers who have more flexible hours in which they can volunteer. A perfect fit for a retired individual who would like to lighten the load of a caregiver. Respite volunteers go to the patient's home and give the caregiver a break to take care of themselves, their home, or other errands. These volunteers are needed to spend time with the patient as needed throughout the month when the caregiver needs to attend to other matters.

Volunteers are trained in their role with patients, we are required to conduct background checks and TB and drug testing, at no charge to all volunteers.

Please contact the office at 916-928-0102 for more information.
