Autumn Volunteer Training at Central Coast Hospice

Save to Favorites

ORGANIZATION: Central Coast Hospice

Thank you for your interest in learning how to support those dealing with end of life concerns.

We need volunteers throughout San Luis Obispo and Santa Barbara Counties. Free training will take place over the course of three Fridays: October 14, 21, and 28, 9-4 each day.

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 a 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 our team! An application and an informal interview are required. If you have questions, please contact us at 805-540-6020 or email emily.granger@cchh08.com.
