Caldwell Hospice Offers Virtual Volunteer Training
Are you looking for an opportunity to make a difference? Do you have the compassionate spirit needed to be a companion for someone’s journey? In partnership with Caldwell Hospice staff, volunteers serve an essential role in patient and family support, administrative and community support.
Caldwell Hospice and Palliative Care* is hosting a two-day virtual training in June for adults who are interested in becoming hospice volunteers. This training will be held Tuesday, June 15, from 8:45 a.m. to 2:15 p.m., and Thursday, June 17, from 9 a.m. to 12:15 p.m. via Zoom video conferencing. To reserve a spot in the Zoom training, participants must complete an application at www.caldwellhospice.org/give-volunteer.
An array of topics will be covered to help prepare attendees to become successful volunteers. Participants will learn about the strong community history and commitment of Caldwell Hospice, the physical, spiritual, and psychosocial issues hospice patients face, and much more from Caldwell Hospice’s staff of end-of-life care experts.
Currently, there is a need for volunteers to provide patient and family support in Alexander, Ashe, Avery, Burke, Caldwell, Catawba, Watauga, and Wilkes Counties. Other specific needs include veteran volunteers to support and make Veterans Honoring Veterans presentations to patients who are veterans.
Attendance is required at each session. For more information or to register for the June 2021 adult volunteer training opportunity, visit www.caldwellhospice.org/give-volunteer or contact Volunteer Coordinator Cyndi Akins at 828.754.0101 or [email protected].
*On May 1, 2021, Caldwell Hospice and Palliative Care and Burke Hospice and Palliative Care integrated to form one organization. The vision of the two like-minded community-owned hospice and palliative medicine providers is to have a greater impact on serious illness and end-of-life care in the communities served. They couldn’t be more excited to reveal their new name on June 1, 2021!
