Beloit Regional Hospice offers volunteer training Sept. 28, Oct. 12
BELOIT, Wis. — Join the growing team of more than 100 active volunteers for Beloit Regional Hospice Saturdays, Sept. 28 and Oct. 12, from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. 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 positive atmosphere of everyone, caring, loving, helping, this was very eye-opening, because my first impression was hospice care is death, but it is hope and life for people.”
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, and registration is requested, so call (608) 363-7421 or e-mail Sherrie Swanson, volunteer coordinator, at firstname.lastname@example.org to reserve a spot. A light lunch is provided both days.
