OSF Hospice of Rockford offers volunteer training
OSF Hospice, a division of OSF Home Care, is offering a volunteer training session from 5:30 to 8 p.m. beginning Wednesday, April 25, at OSF Home Care, 6122 Mulford Village.
The sessions will be on four consecutive Wednesdays and last approximately two-and-a-half hours, depending on the type of training the volunteers require.
Hospice volunteers have many different opportunities. They can help the terminally ill and their families by reading to patients, taking care of young children, helping with housework, running errands or assisting in any way they can to ease the journey for the dying and their families.
Volunteers are also needed to help in the office at OSF Hospice.
OSF Hospice volunteers are needed in Winnebago, Boone, McHenry, Stephenson and Ogle counties.
Only a limited number of volunteers can be accepted into the training sessions. Call 815-395-6013, extension 8256, for information and registration for the sessions.
OSF Saint Anthony Medical Center, a Level I Trauma Center, and OSF Home Care are owned and operated by OSF HealthCare, an affiliate corporation of The Sisters of the Third Order of St. Francis, Peoria.
