Silverado Hospice Ventura is looking for volunteers to join our team. Our patients are terminally ill and in their final stage of life. Although volunteers are currently not allowed to visit due to Covid-19 restrictions, we are able to train you now so that you may visit patients throughout the county in their home or in nursing facilities once restrictions are lifted. We need volunteers who are willing to read the paper or a book to the patient, share hobbies, play & listen to soothing music, talk to patients, bring flowers from a garden, share photos, or just sit quietly and be the gift of presence for them. If you are interested, please reply to this opportunity.
It is our mission to affirm the cycle of life by enhancing the quality of living for those at the end of life. The Silverado standard is to care compassionately for patients and families and to empower those we serve to have quality of life options that afford them comfort and dignity.
Silverado Hospice honors the value of each life by empowering the patient and family to make supported choices in end-of-life care, enhancing comfort, relieving suffering and supporting effective grieving. We believe that Hospice patients have the right to continue life to the fullest extent possible according to their circumstances, and in fostering opportunities for growth and fulfillment. We further recognize patients and family’s decision-making rights in relation to continuing medical treatments and their right to withdraw treatment whose benefits are outweighed by their burdens. Silverado believes in equal opportunity and non-discrimination for our clients, our associates, and our community.
