SPRING TRAINING for Hospice Volunteers Begins
Hospice volunteers are members of the community who donate their time and offer compassionate support to our hospice patients and their families. Some have had a personal experience with hospice care; others simply want to give back to our community in a meaningful way. At Visiting Nurse & Hospice Care, all of our volunteers are carefully screened and are required to complete 18-24 hours of volunteer training, which is offered twice a year in the spring and fall, as a six-week classroom training. Individualized training is available throughout the year.
Spring training begins February 28 from 1:00 to 5:00 PM for 6 consecutive Wednesdays ending April 4. Applications are available online and must be into the Volunteer Office by February 16 in order to complete interviews prior to training.
