Learn more about the volunteer opportunities with Hospice & Bereavement

If you would like to visit hospice patients, relieve their families by providing respite care, help out in the office, build our community network, or offer your gifts and talents - we want to talk with you!

As a NorthBay Hospice Volunteer, you become a vital member on the NorthBay Hospice team, which cares for the terminally ill and provides support to their loved ones. Our volunteer program offers:

  • Patient Care consists of companionship to patient, support and relief to family members and caregivers, and help with shopping and errands.
  • Bereavement volunteers provide continued support to family and friends after the death of a loved one, with phone calls or visits and monthly mailings.
  • Office Support consists of filing, copying, mailing, assembling packets, bagging supplies for patients, and assembling patient information packets.
  • Special Events/Fundraising volunteers assist with NorthBay's annual Tree of Memories Ceremony, and Solano Wine & Food Jubilee, the primary fundraiser for NorthBay Hospice & Bereavement.

Volunteers are required to attend 30 hours of orientation and training sessions, along with a two-hour meeting each month. We offer sessions twice a year for Patient Care and Bereavement volunteers, and ongoing sessions for Office Support, events and fundraising volunteers.
