Hospice and Transitions Volunteer Training
Join the growing team of over 100 active volunteers for Beloit Regional Hospice on Saturday, March 8th, and Saturday, March 22nd, 2014 from 9:00 am to 3:00 pm at the Beloit Regional Hospice office, 655 Third Street, Suite 200, Beloit Wisconsin. This two day informal and interactive training will answer your questions on the end-of-life process, how to talk to the dying, hospice philosophy, pain & 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 1st 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 please call 608 363-7421 or email Sherrie Swanson, Volunteer Coordinator, at email@example.com by February 24th, 2014 to reserve your spot.
