Hospice is about living each day to the fullest. It’s about helping individuals dying of terminal illness live each day in a pain-free environment, with dignity and peace. As a hospice volunteer, you can be a part of this incredible journey.
Affinity Visiting Nurses-Hospice is offering a free training course for individuals who are interested in becoming hospice volunteers. Volunteers are assigned to roles dependent on their individual interests and abilities, as well as availability.
There is a growing need for patient support volunteers in our entire service area which includes the surrounding communities of Chilton, Neenah, Oshkosh, Appleton, Ripon and outlying areas. We are also seeking sewers for our Memory Bear Program.
Volunteering for patient support with hospice is unique. After completing training, approved patient support volunteers are assigned based on patient need. The frequency and duration of patient specific assignments varies according to case specifics. This service allows for a great amount of flexibility and tremendous opportunity for personal growth.
Personal training and ongoing support for all volunteer positions will be provided. Two sessions will be offered at the Affinity Visiting Nurses office, at 816 W Winneconne Avenue, Neenah, WI 54956 in the large conference room.
Session 1: Monday April 3, 2017 from 4 - 5:30 p.m.
Session 2: Monday April 10, 2017 from 4 - 5:30 p.m.
