Duration: Ongoing
First Day : Jul 13, 2015



Promise Hospice’s mission is to “comfort always” and to provide individualized care to all who are facing the end of life. Promise Hospice provides comprehensive physical, emotional, and spiritual care and subsequent bereavement services during life-limiting illness to promote successful grieving in patients and their families.

Hospice is not a place, but a philosophy of care. We care for people who are terminally ill by providing comfort, alleviating symptoms, meeting individual goals, and relieving pain. We serve patients at private homes, board and care facilities, assisted living facilities, and nursing homes. As a hospice, we address physical, emotional, social, and spiritual pain of the patient; provide bereavement support to the family before and after the patient’s death; incorporate a team approach; and affirm the dignity and quality of life for all.

Currently we are looking for volunteers to provide clerical, and bereavement support in our main office in Koreatown, just west of downtown Los Angeles, as well as to visit patients and families to provide presence, companionship, and individual needs support in multiple locations throughout Los Angeles.

We provide comprehensive orientation and training, and we are committed to ensure that you have all the tools you need to feel supported and have the best volunteer experience you can have. This is an excellent opportunity to provide compassion and support to families facing the end of life.

Requirements:
1. Resume and volunteer application
2. CPR training (for direct patient care)
3. Driver’s license, proof of current auto insurance, and reliable transportation for patient visits
4. Medical clearance (including annual TB test and Flu shot)
5. Orientation and training
