Hospice volunteer training

Hospice of Washington County Inc. will offer winter volunteer training for individuals who want to work with patients who receive hospice care. Hospice care focuses on helping patients achieve their end of life goals and offers support to families. Hospice volunteers can improve the daily quality of life for patients and their families.

The training program is designed to provide an understanding of the phases a patient with a life-limiting illness might go through. Members of the class learn the different aspects of hospice family roles, including the aging process; medical aspects of care; grief and bereavement; and listening and communication skills. The information is presented through presentations from hospice staff members, videos and group discussions. The four-week program will be held from 1 to 4 p.m. on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursdays, Jan. 17 to Feb. 3. Interested persons who take the volunteer training program are not required to become a volunteer at the conclusion of the course.
