Volunteering in hospice is a choice that creates rewards for patients and families.
The ultimate surprise is the growth a volunteer develops from learning more about themselves, learning to communicate in ways that increase appreciation for life as daily situations take on a holistic perspective.
Nothing will ever be the same, personally or professionally,
if correctly trained as a hospice volunteer.
Hospice volunteer training can be done conveniently at home or wherever there is access to a computer.
The hospice volunteer program is designed to help strengthen the understanding of hospice for volunteers and those seeking more information on caring for a loved one with a terminal illness.
Training is $10 for the full hospice volunteer training program.
*Note: On site hospice training programs are not replaced by this course.
The training addresses the core concepts that Medicare Conditions of Participation require
for hospice volunteer services.
After completion of training, the student must complete agency specific protocols to volunteer with hospice. For example, background check, required health screening and agency policy and procedures.
