The 2018 hurricane season has been extraordinarily active in parts of the U.S., with Hurricane Florence currently impacting millions in the Carolinas. As this natural disaster unfolds, the staff here at VolunteerMatch is doing its part to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you are prepared and safe. And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know about the most effective ways to contribute.
Hospice Volunteers are vital to hospice, the patients and families they serve. Our hospice program provides specialized professional care to people faced with the terminal phase of any illness. Hospice Volunteers receive a comprehensive training to prepare them to assist families by providing emotional support, relief for care givers, practical support, running errands, and overall, helping to make a very difficult time in people's lives a little easier.
Because hospice provides care where patients reside, volunteers need to have reliable transportation. UC Davis cares for patients throughout Sacramento County, as well as areas of Yolo County, Placer County, and El Dorado County. Volunteers are needed in all these locations.
If you have a heart for service and want to lend your time UC Davis Hospice, we would love to have you as a member of our Volunteer team. We offer FREE volunteer training and you can learn more about the next training through our partnering organization , the Sacramento Hospice Consortium. The training schedule can be found at sachospice.org and you can even register for the training on line!
We look forward to having you as a member of our hospice team!
