BEACON HOSPICE VOLUNTEER TRAINING
with Kelly Herlihy
Did you know over 50% of nursing home residents do not receive visitors? Be the person who makes a difference to a neighbor and their family as they face end of life issues: become a Beacon Hospice Volunteer. This training will prepare you to support patients and their families. Led by the volunteer coordinator, our team of registered nurse case managers, licensed clinical social workers, clergy, and bereavement specialists will provide the informational tools you will need to provide compassionate support for our patients and their families. You will learn the history and philosophy of hospice, medical issues at the end of life including pain and symptom management, communication, family dynamics, grief, loss and spiritual care. Once you complete the course, you decide how best to serve the hospice community. Hospice volunteer work is not about a patient's demise, it is about their LIVING!
