SEPTEMBER HOSPICE VOLUNTEER TRAINING TO BE HELD IN BATTLEMENT MESA

Hospice of the Valley will host comprehensive training sessions for volunteers in Garfield County on Tuesday and Thursday, September 8 and 10 from 9am – 3pm at the Grand Valley Recreation Center in Battlement Mesa.  The two sessions will meet the required 12-hour training requirement.  Applicants are asked to bring a lunch.  Those who would like to be of comfort to those with a terminal illness, including military veterans, are encouraged to apply.

Training topics will include dispelling hospice myths, how to be a good listener, care and comfort measures, guidelines for spiritual care, family systems, and understanding grief and bereavement.  Chaplain and former Volunteer Coordinator of Hospice of the Valley, Sean Jeung, says this about Hospice volunteering. 

Volunteers in hospice represent the safest of all the disciplines.  They are there with absolutely no agenda other than comfort.  The presence of volunteers at the bedsides of our patients is one of the most beautiful things to witness because there’s an aura of love that permeates everything.  They are the true backbone of the mission of hospice care.

If you have an interest in attending these classes, or have any other questions, please email Marti at the Glenwood Springs office at mbarbour@hchotv.org or go to the Hospice of the Valley website to register online by clicking on the Contact tab of www.hchotv.org.  Phone calls may also be taken at 970-930-6020.
