Pet Therapy for Hospice Patients in Oakland

Are you and your therapy animal certified pet therapists/animal-assisted therapists?

Continuum Hospice is looking for certified pet therapists who are willing to volunteer their time with hospice patients. We provide hospice services to patients across Alameda and Contra Costa counties; wherever the patient calls home. Patients may reside in their own home or care facility. A visit from a therapy dog can be so beneficial for patients in their end-of-life journey. The extra attention and unconditional love would go a long way in providing joy and comfort.

The philosophy of hospice care is to provide comfort and the highest quality of life that one can achieve at end of life. Through an interdisciplinary team including a nurse, nurse assistant, social worker, chaplain, and volunteer, we help the patient and family walk through their journey.

Hours are very flexible- weekdays, evenings, or weekends available. Any time that you have available can benefit the lives of those who need it most during this difficult time in their lives.

Mission Statement

Continuum Care Hospice’s mission is to provide the terminally ill patient and their loved ones with the support and care they require to live their lives comfortably. Our goal is to provide physical, emotional, and spiritual comfort. We believe that Hospice care should be available to any and all persons with an illness for which there is no cure or for persons who elect not to attempt a cure, resulting in a limited life expectancy.


Volunteering with Continuum Care Hospice offers you the opportunity to belong to a volunteer fellowship, benefit your well-being and do satisfying work to provide compassionate care to others. You will be a vital and valued member of our team.
