To become a hospice volunteer at Sequoia Hospice, no experience is required, all training and support will be provided. The precious gift of your time, caring nature, and genuine want to be present is priceless.

Volunteering can be as simple as sitting by the bedside, listening with compassion, playing music, reading a book, helping create a scrapbook, offering support, providing relief for the family members and caregivers, and as needed.
