Central Coast Hospice Volunteer Opportunities
ORGANIZATION: Central Coast Hospice
Please visit the new page to apply.
Thank you for your interest in learning about how to support those dealing with end of life concerns.
We offer multiple training sessions a year. There is an in person group training session in August. We also offer virtual training sessions for those who feel more comfortable with it. There are options so please don't hesitate to reach out if you're interested. We are happy to ask answer any questions.
Some of the training topics include: History and Mission of Hospice, Medical Concerns of Patients, Family Dynamics and Communication Skills, Role of the Hospice Spiritual Counselor, Medical Social Worker and Bereavement Counselor, and Volunteer Guidelines/Practices. A binder of teaching materials and a workbook are included. After the training, fingerprinting and TB test will be required. There is no cost for this training.
A hospice volunteer typically provides 2-4 hours a week of companionship, emotional and practical support or respite care to the patients and families that Central Coast Hospice (CCH) serves. Volunteers are a vital part of the hospice team as they can provide the time and attention that patients and families need and deserve. CCH serves patients from Paso Robles to Santa Barbara. Volunteers help the same patient each week and we do our best to match volunteers to patients that live near them.
We hope you can join us! An application and an informal interview are required. If you have questions, please contact us at 805-540-6020 and ask to speak to the Volunteer Coordinator.
