Fall hospice volunteer training

Submitted by Hospice San Juan.

Have you been looking for a way to give back to this community? Be part of a loving and caring team? Learn to be a Hospice of San Juan volunteer at the Grange, 152 First St N, Oct. 22 9 a.m.-4 p.m..

Thanks to the San Juan Island Community Foundation’s County Fair Giving Campaign and incredible generosity from the community, HSJ is able to fully fund volunteer training, so entrance is free and lunch is included.

Expert instructors will discuss the “nuts and bolts” of hospice care and how to safely care for others and selves, reveal the ingredients needed for good home visits and model how to be present for a dying person. Additionally, the co-existence of Hospice of the Northwest (Medicare/insurance-funded hospice) and Hospice of San Juan will be explained.

Space is limited, so register by October 10th, 2022. For more details or to register, go to www.hospiceofsanjuan.org to download an application form or email info@hospiceofsanjuan.org.
