ORGANIZATION: San Francisco Village

Image_202207200757

San Francisco Village (SFV) is looking for dedicated volunteers interested in working with older adults 60+ for our Wellness Program in partnership with Sutter Health/ California Pacific Medical Center (CPMC). Through this partnership, SFV & CPMC are working to reduce hospital readmissions, emergency room visits and improve health outcomes for recently discharged patients. Our Wellness Program volunteers work closely with patients returning home after being discharged from the hospital. Volunteers' tasks include things such as friendly visits, phone check-ins, occasional grocery shopping, medication pick-up, and transportation.

We are looking for a special group of volunteers to extend our caring community to benefit folks who could use some extra support during an especially vulnerable time. Our Wellness Program volunteers help to bridge the gap between health care and social care. Experience and an interest in working with older adults and the healthcare system is a bonus as well as reliability and good communication skills. Please be vaccinated for Covid-19, proof of vaccination required.

Email any questions to Sha'Nice Patterson at sha'nice@sfvillage.org or respond to this opportunity and we will be in touch!
