Touch a heart. Give a hug. Listen to family stories.
Community volunteers are essential partners in the success of Hospice by the Bay's mission. For over 40 years, hospice has cared for patients and their caregivers in the San Francisco Bay Area, bringing quality and compassion to end-of-life services.
Our trained volunteers visit in the patients’ homes or in care facilities. They offer companionship, relief time for caregivers, help with errands, transportation to appointments, or may simply be a caring presence.
Many of our volunteers find their lives enriched not only by the gift of service, but also by connecting with fellow human beings confronting end-of-life.
In addition, we welcome certified complementary care practitioners who can nurture the physical and emotional well-being of patients. These volunteers need previous training and must have a credential/certificate in a particular energy work modality. Previous experience with chronic illness, cancer patients or geriatric care is also required.
We invite you to become a vital member of our hospice care team. Your role is unique and one that offers you a rich experience and inspiration.
