Central Coast Hospice

  • 10 people are interested

Thank you for your interest in learning about how to support those dealing with end of life concerns.

We are currently offering a Learn from Home option for those who find themselves with some extra time these days. We want to be prepared to get back out and help as soon as it is safe to do so.

Training is ongoing and may be done at your own pace at home!

Some of the training topics include: History and Mission of Hospice, Medical Concerns of Patients, Family Dynamics and Communication Skills, Role of the Hospice Spiritual Counselor, Medical Social Worker and Bereavement Counselor, and Volunteer Guidelines/Practices. A binder of teaching materials and a workbook are included. After the training, fingerprinting and TB test will be required. There is no cost for this training.

A hospice volunteer typically provides 2-4 hours a week of companionship, emotional and practical support or respite care to the patients and families that Central Coast Hospice (CCH) serves. Volunteers are a vital part of the hospice team as they can provide the time and attention that patients and families need and deserve. CCH serves patients from Paso Robles to Santa Barbara. Volunteers help the same patient each week and we do our best to match volunteers to patients that live near them.

We hope you can join us! An application and an informal interview are required. If you have questions, please contact us at 805-540-6020
