The Hospice Volunteer: The Heart of Hospice
with Donna Teague
This brief overview will describe the vital function of the volunteer on the hospice team. Did you know that hospices cannot operate without volunteers? They provide support, presence, companionship, silence, laughter, and diversion to people who are facing a vulnerable time of life and are often isolated. What motivates volunteers and what skills are helpful? How do volunteers function in a variety of settings? Find out what is involved in the fuller training program that leads to a nationally recognized certificate. Volunteering, in general, has been proven to help the volunteer live longer and better—hospice volunteering helps everyone involved live longer and better! No discounts. This class will be offered through Zoom or Webex. Students must have an audio and video enabled computer, tablet or smartphone to participate. Merrymeeting will send you information about accessing the class prior to its start date.
