Volunteers working with patients and their families receive 18 hours of
training from the Hospice Team before their participation in hospice care
can begin, but all new volunteers are encouraged to participate in these
classes, which prepare volunteers to work with the sick and dying, offer
support to families and comfort the bereaved.
Volunteer training is offered throughout the year, according to the volume
of interest, but spring and fall are the usual seasons to expect a new
class to start.
