Leave a legacy of kindness in your life and make a positive difference in someone's final stages of life by becoming a Patient Care Volunteer for hospice patients. Hospice provides support to patients and their families during their final phase of life. Hospice patients are first and foremost people, and we are looking for volunteers who have a heart to show up for someone during a difficult period in their life. This work is deeply important and valued as a part of the hospice team. Learn more about those around you who might come from different walks of life and heighten your own sense of spiritual and emotional values while serving in this role.
Patient Care Volunteers assist as friends and companions to patients who have six months or less to live. They provide the patient and/or family with important respite care, emotional support, and companionship. Visits are with patients in their own residences, at assisted living facilities, or nursing facilities.
All volunteers will go through a comprehensive training and are provided with ongoing, guided support from the Volunteer Coordinator.
To volunteer please call Volunteer Program Coordinator (949) 629-0220 or email her at firstname.lastname@example.org

This mission of Echo Hospice is to bring hope, support and life enriching care to those who face life's end.
Volunteers play a vital role in hospice care. They can provide companionship and help with activities that may enhance quality of life while bringing true joy to patients facing terminal illnesses. Volunteers are important and may help ease the burdens associated with end-of-life care for families and loved ones. While Volunteers provide companionship to patients, they can be of great support to their families. We also have other volunteer opportunities available in our programs such as, our Expressions Art Therapy, Blossoms of Love flowers, Pawsitive Pals Pet Therapy, or Music Therapy.
