When you donate your time, skills, and energy to Hope, you’re making a huge impact. Volunteering gives you a unique opportunity to positively affect the lives of patients and their families when they are truly in need. Our programs are growing, and we need the support of volunteers to deliver the very best care to patients.
We serve patients in homes and residential care facilities throughout the Tri-Valley and nearby East Bay communities, so we will work with you to find an assignment near your home or work neighborhood.
Volunteers deliver an extra level of care to patients
Even the simplest of gestures — reading to or talking with someone — has a meaningful impact. There are many ways for you to contribute your time and talents. Our volunteers provide immeasurable support in such ways as:
Visiting with patients
Giving family caregivers much-needed relief
Supporting the work of Hope by helping in the office
Assisting with Hope’s dementia care education program
Hope patient care volunteers help patients and their families, in many different ways. Whether you’re interacting with patients, escorting a canine companion to visit patients or helping in the office or special event, all you really need is compassion and a desire to serve. Our volunteers:
Are sensitive to the needs of others
Have an open and compassionate heart
Are excellent listeners
Never judge the beliefs and lifestyles of others
Have sufficiently resolved any long-term or recent losses
We request a commitment of one to two hours per week, while working with and accommodating your schedule. Other volunteer requirements include:
Successfully completing an application, interview and background check
Finishing a volunteer orientation session
Completing an on-line volunteer hospice training
