Review for Hospice Of San Luis Obispo County, Sn Luis Obisp, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

The Hospice SLO County staff are a phenomenal group of compassionate and selfless people. They provide training for in-home volunteers and end of life vigils as well as many other services related to end of life and grieving, which have helped many, many people. All their services are provided to the public completely free. A valuable gem in our community.

Review for Hospice Of San Luis Obispo County, Sn Luis Obisp, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I am so impressed with Hospice SLO County, especially their professional, caring and friendly staff. I am a retired male in my 60s, and recently completed their very comprehensive In-Home Volunteer training program that opened my eyes to much knowledge that I was unaware of about the serious and important work related to end-of-life issues. The 30-hour training reflects much work and organization and includes numerous expert guest presenters in addition to the very qualified Volunteer Coordinators. The volunteer training manual provided to trainees is very detailed and is an excellent resource for volunteers as they serve their clients.

As a retiree with some time on my hands, another revelation was coming in contact with many other volunteers of all ages with such compassion and commitment to help people in need at such a critical yet vulnerable time. It is inspiring to know there are many such people in SLO County who volunteer but I would not have known if I had not signed up myself. The need for their services is great, and a client waiting list exists until more In-Home Volunteers are trained. Hospice SLO is undoubtedly an under-appreciated resource on the Central Coast and very worthy of all the recognition it receives.
