Volunteer

Since 1977, Hospice SLO County has depended on the generosity and time of volunteers to provide our free services throughout San Luis Obispo County.

Volunteer opportunities at Hospice SLO County:

IN-HOME VOLUNTEER TRAINING

We offer our comprehensive 30-hour In-Home Volunteer Training throughout the year. This training explores personal attitudes about death and dying, the history of hospice, current medical and non-medical approaches to end of life care, communication skills, anticipatory grief and bereavement, and spiritual, practical and emotional support needs of clients and families including family dynamics.

In-Home Volunteers provide 3-4 hours of service per week. This training is also pre-requisite for other trainings offered by Hospice SLO County including End-of-Life Doula and Community Grief Response.

OFFICE SUPPORT

Do you have a couple hours a week that you are looking to fill with rewarding experiences? Do you find serving our community gratifying? Office volunteers support our office staff, answer the phone, greet clients, enter data into our system, and more!
