About

Signature Hospice invites you to share your compassionate heart with patients and families in Salem, Woodburn, Stayton, Dallas, Sublimity and many other Salem communities. The next volunteer training is comprised of three sessions: August 20th, 21st, & 27th, for approx 21hrs of training.

Hospice Companion Volunteer -- Spend 2 hours a week visiting with a hospice patient. Companionship is many things -- listening to stories of a lifetime of sweet memories, enjoying the beauty of nature on a sunny courtyard patio, reading poignant prayer or poetry, holding a hand in gentle silence. Hospice is about quality of life in each moment. Our volunteer training will help deepen your awareness of the healing presence you have available to share in this journey of life.

The training is held in Portland/Tigard, your patient visits will be in your Salem/Marion County community.
