About

BEREAVEMENT PHONE CALL VOLUNTEERS

Please consider joining our wonderful group of Bereavement Phone Call volunteers! Six months after the loss specially-trained volunteers reach out to those bereaved families who have not yet taken advantage of our counseling and/or support group offerings. These "check-in calls" are an important way of letting these families know that we are still thinking of them, that their grief likely feels different than it did immediately following the loss, and to proactively reach out and encourage them to consider individual or group counseling.

We provide a streamlined 4-hour training that includes a basic overview of hospice; privacy and confidentiality; appropriate boundaries; and a simple script and list of questions for the phone calls. Our Bereavement Counselors are always available to follow up with anyone whom the volunteers are concerned about so you are never "alone" in this.


Please contact Sheryl Meehan, Director of Volunteer Services & Complementary Therapies at 978.750.9321 or smeehan@caredimensions.org for additional information.
