Be A Volunteer for Wilshire Hospice

Save to Favorites

ORGANIZATION: Wilshire Hospice INC

Have you ever wondered what it would be like to volunteer for Hospice? Wilshire Hospice is always looking for caring individuals to provide a few hours of their time for our patients each week. Volunteers bring much needed and appreciated temporary respite for caregivers and companionship and emotional support for patients. Reading, shopping, light housekeeping, playing card and board games, and listening to music are just a few of the activities volunteers may offer. But, more importantly, you provide your supportive presence. Over and over, we hear Volunteers say they get so much more out of their experiences than they ever expected and even just a little bit of time makes a huge difference in the lives of our patients, their families, and caregivers.

Our in-depth volunteer training program is designed, not only to equip you with the skills you need to do this soulful work, but it will also give you the opportunity to explore your own thoughts and feelings about life and life’s end.

Trainings are blend of online instruction and individualized support, and our Volunteer Coordinators will guide you through the process ensuring you have the best possible volunteer experience. Volunteers are needed in all areas of San Luis Obispo County and North Santa Barbara County. Bi-lingual (Spanish/English) volunteers are a plus.

Wilshire Hospice has been providing support to our community for over 25 years and offers a training that is both comprehensive and personal. If you are interested and would like more information about our next training or would just like to discuss it more, please call Steve Willey at (805) 547-7025, extension 2021 or email him at HospiceVolunteer@wilshirehcs.org.
