Hospice Volunteers are vital to hospice and the patients and families they serve. Our hospice program provides specialized professional care to people faced with the terminal phase of any illness. After completing a 24-hour long training program, volunteers 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. Although our office is in the Tahoe Park area, we provide care throughout Sacramento County, as well as areas of Yolo County, Placer County, and El Dorado County. Volunteers are needed in all these locations.
The first step to becoming a UC Davis Hospice Volunteer, is completing the Volunteer training through the Sacramento Hospice Consortium. The training schedule can be found at sachospice.org. You can check out the training schedule and even register for the training on line!
