About

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.
