Partnership Highlight

Zen Caregiving Project Volunteer Caregivers serve at San Francisco's Laguna Honda Hospital

Collaborating to enhance care since 1988

Zen Caregiving Project has collaborated with Laguna Honda for more than 30 years, creating a unique service within the largest public long-term care facility in the United States. This site offers much-needed care to the medically underserved populations of San Francisco.

Our Volunteer Caregivers provide practical, emotional, and spiritual support to men and women with chronic and terminal illnesses. Laguna Honda, in turn, provides multi-disciplinary medical and social components. This remarkable partnership between public and private institutions has lasted more than three decades, one of the longest-running hospice and palliative care programs in the country. Together, Zen Caregiving Project and Laguna Honda Hospital have cared for over 2,300 hospice patients in their final days, weeks, and months of life.

Maitri is a non-profit that provides residential and hospice care for people living with AIDS. Our organizations work closely and share learnings to provide the best training possible to our respective volunteers in long-term palliative care and hospice settings. Most recently the Volunteer Coordinator of Maitri attended our volunteer training to learn more about our approach and Zen Caregiving Project staff delivered a talk at the Maitri Volunteer program.
