Bilingual Patient Care and Complimentary Therapy Volunteers Wanted

January 7, 2011, Santa Barbara, CA—Hospice of Santa Barbara is seeking bilingual, Spanish and English speaking, volunteers as well as Complimentary Therapy volunteers to make a difference in the life of a terminally ill patient and their family.

Patient Care Volunteers provide companionship, respite care, transportation, household help and support to Hospice of Santa Barbara patients and clients. All Patient Care Volunteers are required to complete a comprehensive training which includes an initial 6 week course that meets once a week for three hours, and ongoing education and training. Patient Care Volunteers will be trained by our staff and no specific qualifications are required, other than the desire to help others.

Complementary Therapies work in conjunction with conventional medical treatment to create integrative medicine, and treat whole person. Complementary Therapies, such as massage therapy, 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 volunteers from the community will come forward to help Spanish-speakers in the community who are greatly in need of their services.

For more information on volunteering and upcoming training dates or for a volunteer application, please contact Hospice of Santa Barbara at (805) 563-8820 or [email protected].

Hospice of Santa Barbara, Inc. is a Volunteer Hospice Organization that provides care to anyone experiencing the impact of a life-threatening illness, or grieving the death of a loved one.
