ORGANIZATION: Sutter Care at Home - Hospice https://www.sutterhealth.org/scah

Are you a veteran or serving active duty? Would you like to help Sutter Care at Home-Sutter North Hospice honor and thank our hospice patients and their families for their service? Would you like to be a patient volunteer to visit our patients, including our patients who are veterans? Veterans and Active Military have a special connection and ability to relate with other veterans. At End-of-Life, being able to spend time with a veteran and listen to their experiences and stories is very important to many of our veterans and their families. There are several different ways to be a Veteran Volunteer. There are more requirements to volunteer directly with our patients than working indirectly with our patients. Below is a list of volunteer opportunities and direct-patient requirements.

Sutter Care at Home-Sutter North Hospice is looking for compassionate individuals who are interested in volunteering with Sutter North Hospice. There are many opportunities to volunteer which include relieving a very tired caregiver, providing emotional support and companionship to the patient and/or caregiver, honoring our veterans, adult and child bereavement services - "Grief and Loss Groups", volunteering in our office and making and donating quilts and pillowcases to our patients. Our office is located in Yuba City and we serve Yuba and Sutter Counties and portions of Butte, Placer and Plumas Counties. We also serve Colusa. No experience is required - we provide volunteers with thorough training and on-going support. The greatest gift you can offer is your time, your caring nature and your willingness to listen.

Volunteer Requirements: Volunteers receive 16 hours of initial training. Potential volunteers must complete a background check, a physical and drug screen which are all provided through Sutter Health. Our volunteers are required to receive or show verification of an annual flu shot and Tuberculin skin test or blood test, provide immunization records or titers showing immunity to MMR (measles, mumps and rubella), Varicella and show proof of TDAP (tetanus, diphtheria, and pertussis). Sutter Health will provide health screening and any necessary tests or vaccinations. A minimum of 2-4 hours of volunteering per week and a 1-2 year commitment is required. Volunteers are a vital and important part of our hospice team.

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.
