Volunteer Training

When you bring a heart for compassionate service, our volunteer training teaches you how to apply your kindness. You'll develop meaningful working relationships with your fellow volunteers and our hospice team. Each day is a learning experience.

Training includes:

  • The goals and philosophy of hospice care
  • The responsibilities and duties of caring for patients and their families
  • The physical, emotional and spiritual aspects of death and dying
  • Listening and communication skill
  • Patient and family rights
  • Family relationships
  • Spiritual and cultural diversity
  • Patient confidentiality

The first step in volunteering is ensuring we have a location near you.
