Volunteer With Sharp HospiceCare
Become a hospice volunteer and change a life.
Interested in volunteering? Sharp HospiceCare has many volunteer opportunities available and is always looking for committed volunteers to join our team. Volunteering can be a truly rewarding experience that is deeply appreciated by our patients and families.
Volunteer and make a difference.
Sharp HospiceCare volunteers are essential to the hospice team, providing services that hospice otherwise could not offer. Volunteers give their time and compassion to patients and families dealing with end-of-life care needs, providing support in the home, a skilled nursing facility or a hospital.
Volunteers provide nonmedical services such as:
- Caregiver relief
- Companionship for the patient
- Light housekeeping
- Participation in patient outings/errands
- Administrative and clerical duties, such as special-event planning and community outreach
Become an integrative therapy volunteer.
Sharp HospiceCare offers integrative therapies to support people with a life-limiting illness that have decided, with the support of their physician and family members, to forego further curative treatment in favor of comfort measures. The integrative therapies offered include aromatherapy, Reiki, Healing Touch, comfort massage for hands and feet and imagery for relaxation. Currently, we are seeking Healing Touch volunteers for our hospice family caregivers throughout San Diego County.
Our teen volunteer program is waiting for you.
Teen volunteers have provided a rewarding experience for our patients, their families and the teens themselves. Their dedication and enthusiasm for the lives of patients, and the comfort they bring to those they touch, have become an important aspect of Sharp HospiceCare. All of our teens receive the same level of training that patient-care volunteers receive, and provide support to our staff and patients at any of our hospice residences, which include LakeView, ParkView and BonitaView.
Our training and application process.
All volunteers receive extensive hospice training to feel confident in their ability to help. However you choose to volunteer, the outcome is the same — patients' lives will be fuller with your support.
Application can be mailed to the below address and addressed to Sharp HospiceCare, ATTN: Volunteer Department, or emailed to email@example.com.
