Do you play a musical instrument? Do you sing? We are actively looking for a volunteer who can provide the gift of music and their time to hospice patients. We all know how soothing music can be and some of us have seen how we, as humans can communicate through music.
We provide hospice services to adults that have been diagnosed with a life-limiting illness and have a life expectancy of six months or less to live. Hospice patients may reside in their own home or care facility. 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.
This opportunity is flexible around your schedule and availability. The amazing thing about music is that it touches everyone who can hear it whether they are the one you are playing for or not. Please respond to this post for more information. We need you and are looking forward to having the opportunity to work with you to bring the gift of music to our hospice patients.
During most of the pandemic, volunteer were not able to make visits. In the recent weeks we have seen some forward motion towards resuming volunteer visits. We hope that with time and patience that volunteers visits with resume. Physical distancing has made it difficult to make human connections but we are ready to face the challenges as a team.
Please respond with any issues, questions or concerns. Please respond for more information. Looking forward to hearing from you and working with you soon!

Our caring staff and volunteers endeavor to provide an atmosphere of love, caring, peace, and dignity to each individual we serve. We also want the patients and their families to have the opportunity to live the remainder of your life with respect, understanding and joy. Our volunteers have an opportunity to provide comfort care for the patient and/or families whether it be for 30 minutes to an hour during the patient visits. Our team strives to function with compassion and care in order to give the families and patients full support.
As a volunteer with Cadence Hospice you can make a positive impact in the lives of our patients, caregivers, and their families. Volunteers are an integral part of our program and the care we provide; we are always looking for compassionate individuals to join our Volunteer Program/Team. As a volunteer you can donate your time, at a patient’s place of residence, in a variety of ways including companionship and caregiver relief. While volunteering your time with our patients you could just sit and be present, share stories, watch a movie, listen to music, read aloud the patient’s favorite book, and much more!

Free training is provided to get you prepared to go out into the field, and staff is available to support you on your journey volunteering. Don’t pass up this amazing opportunity!
