Hospice volunteers are members of the community who donate their time and offer compassionate support to our hospice patients and their families. Some have had a personal experience with hospice care; others simply want to give back to our community in a meaningful way. At Visiting Nurse & Hospice Care, all of our volunteers are carefully screened and are required to complete 18-24 hours of volunteer training, which is offered twice a year in the spring and fall, as a six-week classroom training. Individualized training is available throughout the year.

Spring training begins February 28 from 1:00 to 5:00 PM for 6 consecutive Wednesdays ending April 4. Applications are available online and must be into the Volunteer Office by February 16 in order to complete interviews prior to training.

◾All training is held at 512 East Gutierrez Street in Santa Barbara.

◾If you are interested in hospice volunteering and want to start immediately, please contact our office at 805.690.6274 to learn about our self-study options available throughout the year.
