The stress of twenty-four hour care-giving can lead to burnout, depriving the patient of the support they need. Respite care provides temporary relief for a primary caregiver, enabling him/her to take a much-needed break. As a Respite Volunteer, you can:
- provide relief to the caregiver and
- become a caring new friend for the patient.
Our respite volunteers undergo extensive training preparing them to provide emotional, physical, and empathetic support to terminally ill patients and their families.
Thrift & Gift:
Our large Thrift & Gift Store is a treasure trove of value for the community. It takes a small group of employees and dedicated volunteers to make it a dependable source of funding for Hospice of Ukiah. Volunteer time is flexible, the work is varied and fun, plus, our volunteers receive a “first peek” at new donations and 25% percent discount on their purchases!
Please kindly fill out the application form below accurately and in detail so that we can connect you with the department you wish to volunteer for.
