Hospice Massage Therapy Volunteers
Einstein Montgomery Home Care and Hospice
Volunteers with certification in massage therapy are welcome additions to the hospice interdisciplinary team. Massage therapy is offered to our patients to help promote comfort during their final journey of life. These volunteers are required to attend the same 15 hr training sessions as visitation volunteers. Training involves learning about the hospice philosophy of care, understanding the thoughts and feelings of persons facing terminal illness and sessions on active listening and effective communication. Support meetings are held several times per year with opportunities for additional training. Attendance at these meetings is optional but encouraged.
