Volunteers provide important social support for our patients who aren't able to leave their homes by helping to keep them connected to the outside world. Having someone to talk to and share stories with is valuable for both patients and their families.
Running errands can be difficult for patients and caregivers who aren't able to leave their homes. Our volunteers can run small errands to help relieve this burden. Volunteers can also sit with patients while caregivers run errands or go to appointments.
Help at Home
Bear Valley Hospice volunteers are able to provide support around the house as well. Volunteers can prepare small meals or snacks and they can also perform light household tasks like swapping laundry or washing dishes.
Many hospice patients and their families struggle to get out of the house for appointments, to run errands, or even for a scenic drive around the lake. Our volunteers can help provide local transportation for patients and their families.
Bear Valley Hospice is very involved in our community and volunteers with local events like the Polar Plunge, Walk to End Alzheimer's, and more! Volunteers are welcome and encouraged to participate in these events.
Bear Valley Hospice is a small, but mighty, local company. Our volunteers can help with filing, cleaning, organize, restock paperwork, etc. This is a great option for volunteers who want to help but might be nervous about patient care.
