No specific skill is needed, no professional background is required, a compassionate heart, a little time and a willingness to have your life changed is what is essential in a Hospice SLO County volunteer. This year do something great for your community and yourself, connect with and through us. In-Home Volunteers help provide companionship, respite care, transportation, emotional support, practical assistance and comfort to individuals who are coping with a life-limiting illness. Other requirements are open-mindedness, a healthy perspective on grief and loss and sensitivity to others. Commitment is up to 4 hours per week for six months.

*Space is limited, so if you are interested be sure to call the office to get your name on the roster (the last training filled up quickly). Also fill out the attached pre-training questionnaire and return ASAP. We must have that prior to the start of the training.*
