Our next Hospice Volunteer Training will be Thursday- March 16 thru May 4th. Classes will be held every Thursday from 1 pm-4pm. Classes will be held in-person.
In addition to developing an understanding of the philosophy and history of palliative & hospice care, this unique educational program prepares volunteers to deal compassionately and sensitively with end-of-life issues by providing them with the necessary skills and knowledge to be of service to individuals facing life limiting illness and their loved ones before, during and after the end-of-life process. Volunteers are there to hold a hand, to listen, to comfort; they may prepare a meal and help with general grooming needs. They may run errands and lend the much needed emotional support, care and guidance to their patients long before the patient qualifies for medical hospice, and provide support and respite to the care-giving family members.
REGISTRATION IS FREE.
Applicants must participate in all sessions.
