Thank you for your interest in learning about how to support those dealing with end of life concerns. We hope you can join us for our winter hospice volunteer training!
Summer SLO Volunteer Training
The training will take place on three consecutive Fridays: October 1, 8 & 15 from 9:00am to 4:00pm in San Luis Obispo. We ask that potential volunteers attend all 3 classes. If you have to miss one class, we can make arrangements to meet with you one-on-one to fill you in on what you missed.
Some of the training topics include: History and Mission of Hospice, Medical Concerns of Patients, Family Dynamics and Communication Skills, Role of the Hospice Spiritual Counselor, Medical Social Worker and Bereavement Counselor, and Volunteer Guidelines/Practices. A binder of teaching materials and weekly lunches are included in the training. After the training, fingerprinting and TB test will be required. There is no cost for this training.
A hospice volunteer typically provides 2-4 hours a week of companionship, emotional and practical support or respite care to the patients and families that Central Coast Hospice (CCH) serves. Volunteers are a vital part of the hospice team as they can provide the time and attention that patients and families need and deserve. CCH serves patients from Paso Robles to Santa Barbara. Volunteers help the same patient each week and we do our best to match volunteers to patients that live near them.
We hope you can join us! Registration and an informal meet and greet are required. If you have questions or would like to register, please contact us at 805-540-6020. Other training dates and locations are available - please reach out for more information!
