Licensed Massage Therapist to Provide Comfort Massages

Save to Favorites

Cadence Hospice

  • A group opportunity. Invite your friends.
  • 3 people are interested

Are you a licensed massage therapist? Do you have even an hour a week or a month to provide comfort massage to hospice patients? Comfort massages can be relaxing and extremely comforting for a hospice patient and can help alleviate pain, anxiety and improve the quality of life for a hospice patient.

Comfort massage provides attentive touch to a hospice patient at their end-of-life and can ease any discomfort a patient may be feeling. Please respond to see how you can volunteer your talents, skills and generous volunteer time with a hospice patient in need. Cadence Hospice and its patients need you! Our administrative offices are located in Orange, Ca. Cadence Hospice provide hospice services to patients across Orange County, as far north into LA County as Whittier and La Habra, down to San Clemente and San Bernardino County (i.e Rancho Cucamonga, Pomona, and Chino Hills), wherever the patient calls home. Patients may reside in their own home, board and care home or facility. We provide hospice services to adults diagnosed with a life-limiting illness who have a life expectancy of 6 months or less should the disease take its natural course. Hospice services are provided wherever the patient calls home, whether in the own home, board and care home, or nursing facility.

This opportunity can be done around your schedule and availability. If for any reason you cannot accept a request due to time constraints, distance, etc. we completely understand. Requests for your services are accepted or declined by you, at your own discretion.

I'm looking forward to hearing from you and look forward to working with you to provide comfort and dignity to hospice patients. Please respond with any questions, issues or concerns you might have.

We are actively recruiting for volunteers at this time. The COVID-19 outbreak has prevented us from making visits to patients at this time. We are taking this time to recruit more volunteers so that once visitations can resume we can hit the ground running with our new recruits. In the recent weeks we have seen some forward motions towards resuming volunteer visits. We are moving slowly and cautiously. Please respond for information on how you can volunteer with Cadence Hospice! We have various other volunteer opportunities available as well. Please feel free to ask what those are. We work hard to utilize the unique skills and generous time of our volunteers to improve the quality of life for our patients.
