1. PHONE CALL:
We do an initial phone screening for all volunteers before setting up an interview. Contact us to verify your eligibility (for example, applicants who have had a recent loss are not recommended to volunteer directly with patients)
2. APPLICATION FORM:
Download, print and complete our volunteer application.
Hospice volunteering is a big commitment and the meeting gives us an opportunity to explain more about the types of work you’ll be doing as well as a great way for us to find out more about each other. Bring the volunteer application with you to the meeting where you will be asked to complete a background check.
Depending on your volunteer assignment, you will be required to complete an orientation (for office volunteers) or attend one of our training courses (for patient visit volunteers.)
5. TB TEST:
All patient visit volunteers must undergo a TB test or chest x-ray before having contact with patients. TB Tests are performed here at the South Pasadena office.
