Hospice Volunteer Training Planned

April 2016

SUN Home Hospice, a Geisinger Service is seeking volunteers. Free training will be provided Tuesdays, May 3, 10 & 17 from 1:00 - 3:30 p.m. in Northumberland.

Volunteers are needed from all walks of life and those who commit to hospice volunteering find it extremely rewarding. They help to add quality to patients' and their families' lives. Those willing to share their special God-given talent(s), such as music, writing, craftiness, or simply conversation, are especially needed. Volunteers are not asked to provide medical care.

The hospice concept is to provide care and dignity to those individuals with a life-limiting illness and to assist their families during and after this time. Hospice care is a loving way of keeping families together; it affirms life, emphasizing quality, not length. Hospice empowers patients to live fully, while including families and loved ones in giving care. Volunteers play a large part in making this happen.

SUN Home Hospice would like to invite community members to consider joining our team as a hospice volunteer. Hospice volunteers are committed and compassionate people who are valuable members of the hospice team. If you are interested in volunteering or would like additional information, please contact Carrie Stine at clstine@sunhomehealth.com or 1-800-634-5232, ext. 24012.
