Provide Respite to caregiver while visiting hospice patient
ORGANIZATION: First Call Hospice
Please visit the new page to apply.
First Call Hospice provides care to over 100 patients throughout Sacramento and Placer Counties.
First Call hospice is looking for volunteers, over the age of 18, who have a flexible schedule.
Oftentimes the caregiver of our hospice patients, who are living in their private home, need someone to spend time with the patient. The caregiver may have an appointment, want to go to church, or just go for a walk. We would love to have volunteers available to visit with the hospice patient during the time the caregiver needs some respite. We work to place volunteers with patients who live somewhat close to them. You can choose whether you can visit at a certain time or not. It could be an on call situation and not necessarily an every week occurance. If you can just give a few hours a month it would relieve the stress of that one caregiver!
First Call provides support and training and reimbursement for mileage. Volunteers are required to complete a background check, 2 step TB test, and drug screen. All at no cost to the volunteer.
