Elizabeth Hospice is seeking caring people, especially from Ramona, and is offering Fall Volunteer Training on Nov. 27, 28, and 29.
The training will be from 8:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. the three days at the Escondido Chamber of Commerce, 720 N. Broadway, Escondido. It is free and open to the public.
Bilingual, military veterans, and pet therapy volunteers are also needed.
Professional staff at Elizabeth Hospice teach the classes, addressing issues such as the volunteer role in hospice care, working with non-verbal patients, cultural diversity, complementary therapies, and active listening. A person who graduates from the training will serve hospice patients and their family members who live in the graduate’s community.
To ensure a spot in the volunteer training, contact Elizabeth Hospice volunteer department at 760-737-2050, no later than Nov. 19. Another training will be offered in the winter.
Volunteers provide medical, emotional, and spiritual support to those with life limiting illnesses and their families. For more information see elizabethhospice.org.
