Hospice volunteer training offered in June

The Hospice program of Providence SoundHomeCare and Hospice is offering a hospice volunteer training for community members.

Volunteers are a part of a hospice team that helps patients at the end of their life to maintain their independence and quality of life. Volunteers may provide support to families/caregivers and those who are dying by offering respite for a caregiver, companionship and support for a patient who is alone, assisting with errands, being a loving presence and a compassionate listener, reading to a patient, sharing artistic skills, etc.

This training will take place over the course of two full days and four afternoons in June.

All sessions will be held at the Providence SoundHomeCare and Hospice office in Olympia.

A year’s commitment to the program is asked. Registration is necessary. To receive an application and to register for the training, call (360) 493-4689 or 1-800-869-7062.
