Hospice of Dickinson County is looking for compassionate individuals who want to make a difference in our community, and join the dedicated team of volunteers. New hospice volunteer training for those interested in becoming a volunteer has been scheduled. Anyone in Dickinson County is welcome to attend.
The class in Abilene will be held from 4:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. on Thursday, March 2, and Friday, March 3, at the Home Health and Hospice office, 1111 N. Brady. The training is for individuals who would like to help support hospice patients and their families, and will include how the program works and how volunteers are an important part of the hospice program.
There are many ways in which hospice volunteers can lend their time and unique talents. Whether helping support patients, caregivers, and families directly, or by assisting with administrative work, there is a special place for you on the hospice volunteer team. Volunteers do not provide any medical or hands-on care; they simply spend time with the patient and family.
