If you would like to visit hospice patients, relieve their families by providing respite care, help out in the office, build our community network, or offer your gifts and talents — we want to talk with you!
As a NorthBay Hospice Volunteer, you become a vital member on the NorthBay Hospice team, which cares for the terminally ill and provides support to their loved ones. Our volunteer program offers:
- Patient Care consists of companionship to patient, support and relief to family members and caregivers, and help with shopping and errands.
- Bereavement volunteers provide continued support to family and friends after the death of a loved one, with phone calls or visits and monthly mailings.
- Office Support consists of filing, copying, mailing, assembling packets, bagging supplies for patients, and assembling patient information packets.
- Special Events/Fundraising volunteers assist with NorthBay's annual Tree of Memories Ceremony, and Solano Wine & Food Jubilee, the primary fundraiser for NorthBay Hospice & Bereavement.
Volunteers are required to attend 30 hours of orientation and training sessions, along with a two-hour meeting each month. We offer sessions twice a year for Patient Care and Bereavement volunteers, and ongoing sessions for Office Support, events and fundraising volunteers.
