Volunteering at Skirball Hospice
In keeping with our original mission, Skirball Hospice has developed an extensive and varied Volunteer Program. Give an hour a week and make a difference in your life and the lives of patients and their families in various ways:
Patient and Family Services
Be an integral part of the care team through regular visits that might include sharing music, conversation, reading and letter writing, engaging in the patient’s hobbies, assisting with life review through picture albums and memorabilia, conducting pet therapy visits, providing time for a caregiver or family member to do errands and enjoy some personal time or doing errands for the family.
Administrative and Office Services
Assist the office staff with clerical work, mailings, and data entry related to our patients' care. Experienced volunteers assist the volunteer coordinator with training and educational and recruitment activities.
Provide emotional support, companionship, and assistance to bereaved families, significant others and/or caregivers.
Make a difference in your life and that of a hospice patient by giving just one hour a week.
