The Hospice program of Providence SoundHomeCare and Hospice is offering a hospice volunteer training for community members. The number of people needing hospice is increasing and so is the need for volunteers. Volunteers will have an opportunity to enhance a terminally ill patient’s quality of life while enriching their own. Volunteers are a part of a hospice team that helps patients at the end of their life to maintain their independence and quality of life. Volunteers may provide support to families/caregivers and those who are dying by offering respite for a caregiver, companionship and support for a patient who is alone, assist with errands, being a loving presence and listening, reading to a patient, sharing artistic skills etc. Residents of Mason County are welcome to attend the training. They will be placed as volunteers in Mason County after finishing the training that is held in Thurston County.
