Virtual Hospice Volunteer Training
July 28 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm
An event every week that begins at 10:00 am on Tuesday, repeating until July 28, 2020
Our first Hospice Virtual Volunteer Training will meet from June 9th to July 28 (Tuesday mornings) from 10AM – noon. At Cornerstone we use GoToMeeting (for virtual meetings) which is secure and user friendly.
Hospice volunteers provide comfort, support and reassuring presence to patients and family members in their communities. This comprehensive 8-week Hospice Volunteer Training program focuses on: The history of Cornerstone VNA, Hospice History and Philosophy, Volunteer Job Description, The Hospice Team, Medical and Psychosocial Aspects, Family Involvement, and Spiritual Care. No medical or volunteer experience is necessary to join the training. The virtural eight-week session will begin in June.
Cornerstone VNA Hospice Volunteers have shared:,“Hospice volunteering has been the most rewarding and humbling experience of my life” and “Hospice visiting has shown me how to be present.” Cornerstone VNA invites you to learn new skills and be a part of this enriching and meaningful volunteer experience.
