About

Wecome! We offer opportunities for volunteers to become an integral member of our core hospice team. We are short of volunteers in the Ventura County (Simi Valley,Canejo Valley, Oxnard, Ventura, Santa Paula, and I am hoping you will find it in your heart to say yes to giving to seniors so often forgotten. Silverado Hospice is a program of palliative (comfort) care for people who have six months or less to live. 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), some live in Board and Care facilities and others reside in their own private homes. You can gain valuable experience and at the same time make such a difference to those who don't have a lot of life left! Volunteers socialize with patients, feed them, take them for walks, 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 by answering this ad or by emailing gkogan@silveradocare.com
