Community Hospice to offer volunteer orientation

ASHLAND Ky. — Community Hospice has scheduled an evening Volunteer Orientation training. The two-day session will be Tuesday and Wednesday from 5:30-8:30 p.m. on Nov. 5-6.  The sessions will be held at the Community Hospice Care Center located at 2330 Pollard Road, Ashland.

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, those with chaplain experience, and at the 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.

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  800-926-6184.
