March 1 deadline for Beloit Regional Hospice volunteer training
Online Staff Report
BELOIT, Wis. — Join the growing team of more than 100 active volunteers for Beloit Regional Hospice from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., Saturdays, March 9 and March 23, at the Beloit Regional Hospice office, 655 Third St., Beloit, Wis.
This two-day informal and interactive training will answer questions about the end-of-life process, how to talk to the dying, hospice philosophy, pain and symptom management, and spirituality.
In the words of a recently-trained volunteer: “The training opened my mind to the concept that death does not have to be the sinister black hole as culture has deemed it. There is no doubt that facing your own death (or that of a loved one) is incredibly daunting, but the hospice philosophy brings a calmness and dignity to the process.”
Hospice and Transitions volunteers are essential to the array of services offered by Beloit Regional Hospice, and volunteers make their own schedules depending upon their availability.
For this training, you must attend both days. Registration is requested, so call (608) 363-7421 or e-mail Sherrie Swanson, volunteer coordinator, at firstname.lastname@example.org by March 1 to reserve a spot. A light lunch is provided both days.
