Bridge Hospice offering volunteer training
Bridge Hospice will offer training courses for prospective volunteers beginning on July 11.
The training will be held in the Wenner Conference Room at Birchaven Village, located at 15100 Birchaven Lane in Findlay, and will run for six consecutive Thursdays from 6 to 8:30 p.m.
Courses will cover the basic principles of hospice, understanding the needs of patients and their families, effective communication, patient care, pain and symptom management, spiritual care giving and understanding grief and loss.
No previous hospice experience is necessary; however, volunteers must be at least 18 years old.
Following training, volunteers can choose their area of involvement, such as caregiver relief, bereavement, hospice care center, nursing home visitors, gift of dreams or clerical work.
