Desert View Hospice, a premier hospice organization serving patients in the greater Inland Empire area, provides expertise, compassion, and care for our patients and their families as they face terminal illnesses. Our team of professionals helps improve the quality of life by addressing our patients' physical, emotional, and spiritual needs. We seek to comfort the heart, mind, and body through this interdisciplinary approach.

Volunteers in a hospice office play a crucial role in ensuring the smooth functioning of the facility and supporting the overall mission of hospice care. Here is an overview of what hospice office volunteering entails:


Administrative Support:
Volunteers assist with various administrative tasks such as sending birthday and bereavement letters and, helping with the organization of office documents and supplies, and managing paperwork.

Patient and Family Support:
While hospice office volunteers are not directly involved in patient care, they create a supportive environment for patients and their families.
They may engage in activities such as preparing informational materials, organizing support groups, and assisting with communication between healthcare professionals and families.

Event Coordination:
Volunteers may help plan and organize events, workshops, or educational programs to provide resources and support for patients and their families.
These events may include memorial services, holiday workshops, or community outreach programs like honoring veterans in nursing care facilities.

Overall, hospice office volunteering offers individuals an opportunity to contribute to the well-being of those facing terminal illnesses by providing essential administrative support and fostering a compassionate and organized hospice care environment. Volunteers play a vital role in enhancing the overall experience for patients and their families during challenging times.

Desert View Hospice helps our patients and families navigate the medical, emotional and spiritual aspects of end of life care- providing comfort and care during a challenging and difficult time. Our goals are to have an amazing pool of volunteers to match with our patients and families to provide everyone involved with an endearing meaningful experience that will be remembered always. There are no words to describe how significant the hospice journey can be. And to be granted the privilege of sharing that time with a vulnerable patient/family is a such a powerful honor. Desert View Hospice does hospice care- and only hospice care- to provide the best experience available for those in our charge. Volunteers provide care on their time schedule and within their comfort zone. Desert View Hospice asks that you be at least 21 years of age and able to drive to patient's homes (you will not be asked to transport patients or family members).
