KP exists to provide affordable, high-quality health care services to improve the health of our members and the communities we serve.
Hospice is a coordinated program of comfort care and support services designed to meet the unique needs of patients and families facing a limited life expectancy. Services provided are directed through an interdisciplinary team of professionals: Physicians, nurses, social workers, spiritual counselors, aides, therapists, and volunteers. Bereavement services are also available to families, up to one year, following the patient's death.

Dear Norma A, please accept my apology if you were not contacted. I certainly make every effort to respond to requests in a timely manner. I see you submitted a request on 2/23/10. Hospice is still in need of office workers, and would greatly appreciate your help. If you are still interested, please contact me at 707-645-2245, and I would gladly send you an application. Once again, I apologize, and hope I have the opportunity to work with you.
I sent in a volunteer request to the hospice program earlier this year. I never heard from them. I am a retired clinician who worked as a case manager in mental health (population 18-65 for 15 years)I later worked for one year as a social worker in a skilled nursing facility before I retired. I also have a doctorate in Psychology. My only stipulation was that I am caring for my mother and that I couldn't do a lot of visitations. I stated that I would be happy to work in the office when needed.
