Hospice Volunteers Needed (Riverside and San Bernardino Area) (Riverside)

We are looking for volunteers to visit and provide companionship to our Seniors and Terminally Ill patients. A select group of our volunteers are also trained in mediation so they can assist patients with learning mediation skills to help the patients with pain management.

As a hospice volunteer, you have the privilege of serving patients and their families at a very difficult time. Many patients find it helpful to talk about their lives with an objective listener. They feel free to discuss events and issues with a volunteer that it may be difficult to share with their relatives or health providers. In addition to visiting with patients, your presence as a volunteer also gives family members the opportunity for a much-needed break. The kinds of activities a volunteer might do include:

-Light housekeeping (dishes, laundry, meal preparation)
-Running errands
-Letter writing
-Sharing hobbies or special interests


We offer our volunteers:
-Mileage Reimbursement
-Rewarding Work

Each potential volunteer must:
-Provide proof of Insurance and CA drivers license
-Undergo a Physical Exam, TB test, Drug Screening, and Background Check

We are looking for a minimum commitment of 1 visit per week.

Thank you!
