All HRC volunteers are required to complete training classes, and classes are offered approximately three times each year at the Hospice office. Please see our calendar for the January, May and September, 2017 training sessions.
Volunteer training class topics include:
|Introduction to the Hospice philosophy|
|Patients and terminal illness|
|Communication and listening skills|
|Psycho-social aspects of terminal illness|
|Grief and bereavement.|
Classes are offered free of charge and all materials are provided. There is no obligation to become a volunteer after training. If someone decides that Hospice volunteering just is not for them, we certainly understand and respect that.
