Hospice of Santa Barbara in Need of Complementary Therapy Volunteers

Cranial sacral and massage therapists are especially needed

Hospice of Santa Barbara is seeking Complementary Therapy volunteers to make a difference in the lives of terminally ill patients and their family members. Cranial sacral therapists and massage therapists are especially needed.

In addition to treating patients, Hospice of Santa Barbara also treats their family caregivers and the acutely bereaved.

Complementary Therapies work to treat the whole person. Complementary Therapies, such as massage, cranial sacral therapy, Reiki and others, can alleviate suffering and heal the mind and spirit. Those interested must be licensed in their particular therapy.

Hospice of Santa Barbara is hoping that compassionate, licensed, Complementary Therapy volunteers from the community will come forward to help those who are greatly in need of their therapies.

Volunteer training sessions will be held on three Tuesdays — March 27, April 3 and April 10. All sessions are held from 6 to 9 p.m. at Hospice of Santa Barbara, 2050 Alameda Padre Serra, Suite 100 in Santa Barbara, and attendance at all three sessions is required.

For more information on volunteering and upcoming training dates or for a volunteer application, contact Dana VanderMey of Hospice of Santa Barbara at 805.563.8820 or .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address).

Hospice of Santa Barbara “volunteers” its free professional counseling and care management services to more than 500 children and adults every month who are experiencing the impact of a life-threatening illness, or grieving the death of a loved one.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
