Hospice Volunteer Training Course
The focus is on learning new communication skills, exploring issues of grief and loss, sharing views of spirituality and understanding concepts of symptom management and end of life care. Participants will become acquainted with the hospice team, our medical director, hospice nurses, medical social workers, hospice chaplains, home health aides and other hospice volunteers. Our goal is that volunteers will be comfortable and confident as they spend time with patient’s and their “families”.
Volunteering as a Hospice Patient Volunteer just a few hours a week can make an immeasurable difference to a patient and their family. Providing relief to caregivers, visiting with patients, running errands, are just a few of the ways volunteers can be of service. Volunteers do not provide hands on patient care.
The Hospice Training will begin Wednesday, January 25, 2017 for 8 consecutive weeks from 9:30 AM -12:30 PM at Livingston Memorial Visiting Nurse Association.
