About

Wecome! Volunteers are an integral part of our hospice team.

Silverado Hospice is a program of palliative (comfort) care for people who have a life limiting condition of six months or less. We specialize in dementia and Alzheimer's disease, but have patients with all manner of end-stage diagnoses. Some of our patients live in Silverado Senior Living assisted-living communities (located in Calabasas), while other live in smaller facilities or their own homes.some live in Board and Care facilities and others reside in their own private homes.

Volunteers socialize with patients, participate in activities and give relief to hard working care givers. Those with musical or artistic abilities are welcome to share their talents. Volunteers can arrange their patient visits for weekdays or weekends, days or evenings. The commitment is usually 2-4 hours per week. Training and support is provided and ongoing education is offered. For more information and to discuss opportunities available at Silverado Hospice, please call me at 805-230-2626 or 888-328-6626, or email me at gbough@silveradocare.com
