Kindred Hospice

Do you have a talent to share? A contagious passion to help others? Do you want to make a big impact in someone's life? Join our team of upbeat, big-hearted professionals who are dedicated to bringing peace to those with terminal illnesses.

Now that Covid-19 is part of our lives, we are reaching out to our patients and families from a distance. Distance volunteering options will continue to be available to our volunteers, even if Covid-19 is no longer a concern.

Our volunteers are welcomed as respected members of the care team, whether they have a desire to help (when we are no longer in "pandemic mode") in the office, or help patients/families by walking a patient's dog, do some gardening, help patients write letters, play cards, sing/read to them, or just offer a friendly ear. Whether they work directly with patients/families or prefer to help in-directly in the office, we are happy to work around our volunteers' schedules.

Currently, training is done via Zoom, or other preferred distance learning mode. Training is informative, easy and can be fun. It is designed to give volunteers the tools to be confident and comfortable working with our patients.

We want to help patients find meaning in every moment that they still have. Volunteers are an integral part of their journey, providing companionship and a comforting presence.

Start your volunteer journey today with a very rewarding and meaningful experience!

Serving Kern county, including Bakersfield, Taft, Wasco, Delano, Tehachapi and surrounding communities..
