ORGANIZATION: Visiting Nurse Home & Hospice


Hospice Volunteer Training October 5 - 26 on Wednesdays from 9:00am -12:30pm in Portsmouth, RI.

Volunteers make a difference supporting our patients as compassionate visitors, running errands, or providing respite for the caregivers. Individuals with training in Reiki, Pet Therapy, Music or Expressive Arts are especially needed to offer complementary services to hospice patients. The training will include hospice philosophy of care, bereavement care, compassionate communication, and the role of clinical providers.
