Dignity Health Hospice Seeking Volunteers

Dignity Health Hospice is seeking volunteers from throughout the Central Coast to help in its mission to provide compassionate and supportive end-of-life care to patients and their loved ones.

Dignity Health Hospice is a team of health care professionals who work together to care for and support patients and their families with a life-limiting illness. This care is provided where the patient resides and aims to help the patient maintain the highest quality of life possible.

Hospice volunteers will have an opportunity to make an important difference in the lives of Dignity Health patients and their loved ones.

Hospice volunteers are needed in Lompoc, Santa Maria, Arroyo Grande, San Luis Obispo and the Atascadero area.

Volunteers of all ages are welcome and are needed both for office support, and in-home companionship.

Some of these opportunities include socialization, music enjoyment, arts and crafts, massage therapy and pet therapy.

Volunteers are also sought to simply sit with patients and their loved ones as a compassionate presence.

Hospice volunteer training is provided and is flexible to accommodate different schedules.  

For more information on volunteering with Dignity Health Hospice, call 805.739.3830 x2061.

Sara San Juan is a marketing specialist representing Dignity Health.

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!
