Cadence Hospice is looking for volunteers who would be interested in sitting with patients when they are actively dying. Vigil volunteers are specially trained to sit with patients as patient is approaching end-of-life. Vigil volunteers can sit with the patient when family is present for support but also when family are not present. Often times families are comforted knowing a volunteer is with their loved one when they cannot be.
Vigil volunteers are needed when a patient is actively dying. This volunteer opportunity is on-going and volunteers will be notified when there is a patient in need. Essentially, you will be able to offer your availability when the need presents itself. As a vigil volunteer, you can sit with patients any time of the day or night.
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.
You will undergo training for this unique and intimate volunteer opportunity. Please respond to this ad for more information on how to join our Vigil Volunteer Program. Thank you in advance for your interest.

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!
