Hospice Volunteers are uniquely skilled individuals who provide a supportive, compassionate presence to people at the end of life and their families. Sutter Care at Home Hospice is a nonprofit hospice agency.

Common activities include:

  • Providing companionship to terminally ill patients wherever they call home
  • Supporting family caregivers to engage in self-care
  • Socializing with patients who have limited support systems
  • Running errands or helping with small tasks around the house
  • Helping with office administrative support
**Hospice volunteers are not asked to perform medical or caregiving tasks**

All volunteers receive comprehensive training, on-going educational opportunities, and support from a Volunteer Coordinator. Sutter Care at Home covers the costs of all training, background checks, and health prerequisites as well as annual TB testing and flu vaccinations. Veterans encouraged to apply.

Come join our community of incredible people and discover the power of being a hospice volunteer.

Mission Statement

Sutter Care at Home enhances the health and well being of the people in the communities we serve through a not-for-profit commitment to compassion and excellence in home-based services and products.

Description

To become a hospice volunteer at Sutter Care at Home the greatest gift you can offer is your time, your caring nature, and your willingness to listen. Training and ongoing support are provided to all volunteers, so experience is not required. It's a great opportunity to learn new skills and enhance existing ones. Volunteers are trained to enhance the overall goal of meeting the physical, emotional, spiritual and practical needs of hospice patients and their families.

Volunteers may stay with the patient to give the caregiver some time away or time to rest and they can be a caring companion and compassionate listener to both patients and families. While volunteers cannot provide clinical or personal care, they may be able to assist with routine tasks and errands.

Requirements: Volunteers receive 24 hours of training, health clearance and a background check, and attend monthly educational meetings. They must work closely with Volunteer Program Coordinator as members of the hospice team.
