Have you ever wondered what it would be like to volunteer for Hospice? Wilshire Hospice is looking for caring individuals to be Hospice In-Home Volunteers. Hospice provides the volunteer with many ways to support patients and families and opportunities for rich, meaningful relationships and experiences. Hospice Volunteers offer non-medical, practical and emotional support as well as companionship. No experience is necessary and volunteers need only bring their heart and a willingness to be of service.
Volunteers are offered to patients and families as part of the Medicare Hospice Benefit. There are a wide range of services volunteers may offer to patients and caregivers including emotional support, caregiver relief, practical support such as errands and tasks around the home, and companionship. The presence of a volunteer in the home or facility can facilitate communication with family or caregiving staff, validate the support of caregivers and provide much appreciated companionship and gentle, skilled listening. In this time of heightened awareness of infectious diseases, volunteers are also needed to engage in supportive calls to patients, families and caregivers. These calls provide additional links to the Hospice team and may be done from home.
Volunteers usually offer between 2 and 4 hours per week depending on their availability and the needs of their client/family. Twenty hours of training are required that include online instruction and working with the Wilshire Hospice Manual for Volunteers (provided at no cost).
Volunteers are needed in all of San Luis Obispo County and North Santa Barbara County.
Spanish-speaking volunteers are also needed in many areas of our two Counties.
Our Wilshire Hospice Volunteer Training is designed around providing a soulful opportunity for personal growth while equipping you with the skills and support you will need for a meaningful volunteer experience.
*During this time of COVID-19 and heightened awareness of infectious disease protocol, every effort is being made to supply our volunteers with the tools and education they need to volunteer safely in our community. All training is provided online through Zoom at this time and many opportunities are provided throughout the year. Please call, email or check the website for upcoming dates.
