Hospice Volunteer Training Offered

(GARDEN CITY, KAS.) Hospice volunteers bring light & love into people's lives. St. Catherine Hospice is seeking individuals in the southwest Kansas area who are interested in becoming a hospice volunteer in their own community.

Hospice of St. Catherine Hospital is offering a volunteer training on Friday, April 29th from 6-10 pm and Saturday, April 30th from 9 am-5 pm in Liberal, KS, at the Church of the Nazarene, 2211 Zinnia Lane.

There is no charge for the training and meals will be provided. Attending the training does not commit individuals to becoming a hospice volunteer; however, to become a volunteer you must attend the entire twelve hour training. Some of the topics include: Hospice philosophy and concept, communication skills, team building, family dynamics, cultural diversity, spiritual needs of the dying, grief and bereavement and much more. Volunteers serve in their own community providing support to the terminally ill and their families.
