Community Hospice seeks volunteers

Community Hospice has scheduled a new Volunteer Orientation training. The two-day session will be March 11-12 from 9 a.m.-4:30 p.m.

The sessions will be held at the Community Hospice office located at 1480 Carter Avenue, 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, chaplains providing spiritual support, military vet-to-vet visits 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.
