Cadence Hospice is looking for volunteers who would like to volunteer their time and efforts visiting with hospice patients providing socialization and companionship. On a deeper level, we are looking for a volunteer who will do Life Review with our appropriate patients.
What does this include? Visiting with patients and recording their life story. The recording will be a gift to the patient and their family. In our experience, we will tend to share our stories with those we consider our friend-perhaps stories we've never shared with our family and loved ones. That's where you come in! Many of the patients we serve have experiences and recollections of historical events that they can share with us. This is a gift of your time but also the gift of their story that will live on. We serve a population with unique memories, historical events, etc. that we can have the fortune of listening to.
We are open to what form the recording will be in (typed, hand-written, audio recording, video recording etc.) We strive to utilize the skills, time and efforts of our volunteers.
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 are actively recruiting for volunteers! The COVID-19 outbreak has prevented us from making visits to patients. We are taking the time to recruit more volunteers so that once visitations can resume we can hit the ground running with our new recruits. Please respond for information on how you can volunteer with Cadence Hospice!
Please respond for more information on how you can get involved. We would love the opportunity to collaborate with you. If you have any questions, issues or concerns please don't hesitate to respond with those as well.
At Cadence Hospice, we understand that this is a difficult time for family and friends. 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!
Your service is invaluable to patients, their caregivers and families, and for our Cadence Hospice staff. 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! We look forward to hearing from you!
