Hospice Volunteers Needed in Tomahawk
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.
Compassionate volunteers are currently needed throughout the Rhinelander, Tomahawk and Crandon region. Volunteers provide support to hospice patients and their loved ones in their homes, nursing homes, and other residential care facilities. There are also opportunities to get involved in outreach and fundraising for the hospice program, and to assist the professional team with clerical duties.
Ministry Home Care - Hospice Services will provide their free 6-week volunteer training Wednesdays, August 7 – September 11, 9:00am-Noon in the Spruce Room at Sacred Heart Hospital in Tomahawk (401 West Mohawk Drive).
This comprehensive training provides the foundation of knowledge and skill needed to provide support to patients and their families. Ongoing support and training opportunities are provided throughout a volunteer’s tenure. Hospice volunteers are special men and women! While caring for others, you can find new meaning in your own life, gain greater self-knowledge, and experience satisfaction from making a difference in people's lives. As a result, volunteers often become more focused on the parts of life that matter most.
There is no charge, but pre-registration is required by Friday, August 2nd. To register, please call Melissa Houg at 1-800-643-4663.
