Region: Training for hospice volunteers
October 28, 2013
Hospice volunteers are needed in Westborough, Shrewsbury, Northborough, Marlborough, Hudson, and Southborough. If you have the time and heart to share, you could become a valuable part of the Overlook Hospice Team.
Hospice volunteers provide companionship and support to hospice patients and their families…reading to patients, watching movies, playing cards, walking dogs, fixing a meal, gardening, supporting family members, sitting with patients who are actively dying and making bereavement calls. Volunteers to provide Reiki, pet therapy and music therapy are also being sought.
Volunteers visit patients in their homes and in nursing homes in Westborough, Shrewsbury, Northborough, Marlborough, Hudson, and Southborough and the surrounding area. Full training and ongoing support provided. The next training begins Oct. 28.
