Our Volunteers

"The volunteers are truly amazing and compassionate people."

Volunteers Jim and Bob

 

Zen Hospice volunteers have been a cornerstone of our care giving model for almost three decades.

At our Guest House, trained  volunteer care givers work with staff to serve each resident in ways that focus on quality of care and quality of life. The same mindful care is provided by Zen Hospice volunteers at the 60-bed hospice and palliative care floor at Laguna Honda Hospital.

We are grateful for the generosity and deep commitment that all of our volunteers bring to their service.
