Share your love of music with hospice patients
Mission Hospice & Home Care
We’re looking for musicians to share their music with our patients facing terminal illness. Music can soothe and relax our patients - many of them ask if someone can sing to them, play an instrument, or just listen to music with them.
By sharing your music, you can help meet the emotional, spiritual, and social needs of our patients and families. We ask our music volunteers to visit at least one patient a week. Your volunteer time is flexible, based on your availability and our patients’ schedules.
No experience necessary! We provide you with all the training and support you need, including a network of other amazing hospice volunteers. Many of them say that this is the most meaningful work they’ve done.
Your volunteer time is flexible, based on your availability and our patients’ schedules.
Mission Hospice & Home Care provides personalized, compassionate end-of-life care for patients and families in San Mateo County and northern Santa Clara Counties. As a direct care volunteer, you will support our hospice patients and their families with weekly visits - in their homes, in nursing homes, or wherever they live.
If you are caring, flexible, and a good listener - you can provide important emotional and social support for patients who are living with terminal illness. Your time - and your music - will make a very special difference in the lives of your patients and their families.
About Mission Hospice & Home Care

Mission Hospice & Home Care is a nonprofit organization whose professional staff and well-trained volunteers are dedicated to providing the finest quality, compassionate care to those who are terminally ill or facing a life-limiting illness, and to supporting their families through illness and bereavement.
It’s about life! Mission Hospice & Home Care helps patients live life to the fullest, offering medical, spiritual, emotional, and practical support to patients and familes throughout the end-of-life process.
We are San Mateo County's first hospice program, founded by volunteers in 1979. Since then, our staff and volunteers have cared for more than 10,000 patients and families throughout the San Mateo County area.
We are known for our personal, individualized palliative care - whether in patients’ homes, assisted living, board and care, or skilled nursing facilities. We see every day that our compassionate care gives patients and their loved ones the opportunity to cherish their time together.
This work would not be possible without volunteers, who are the heart and soul of our care. Our direct care volunteers offer important emotional and social support to our patients and their families, providing companionship, logistical assistance, and more. Our indirect care volunteers offer their time and talents in the office, assisting with mailings, special events and administrative tasks. The Mission Hospice Auxiliary is dedicated to raising funds and promoting awareness of the services provided by Mission Hospice & Home Care.
