Event Description

"Community Hospice had scheduled a new Volunteer Orientation training. Although volunteers are needed for a variety of duties, there is a particular need for those interested in providing short in-home caregiver breaks, emotional support and companionship visitation, nursing home visits, chaplains providing spiritual support, and at our Care Center as a greeter/receptionist or working with the hospitality cart. Volunteers determine when and how often they are available to assist -- a few hours a week or just occasionally. All volunteers must complete the required training to be certified. Community Hospice currently has more than 200 active volunteers in their nine county service area -- Boyd, Greenup, Carter, Lawrence, Elliott, Martin and Johnson counties in Kentucky, along with Lawrence and Scioto counties, Ohio. If you are interested in becoming a Hospice volunteer or to reserve your space, contact Andrea Arnett, Director of Volunteers, at 606-329-1890 or 1-800-926-6184."
