Hospice of Pella Volunteer Training Starts March 15

PELLA, Iowa –Hospice of Pella volunteers are members of the community that donate their time in service of those Hospice of Pella serves. Many times the role of the Comfort House and home hospice volunteers is behind the scenes, but the full scope of all that the volunteers do is admirable. Whether it’s reading to a patient, weeding the garden or running much needed errands to a hospice patient in their home, the volunteers are an important part of the team.

Hospice of Pella has scheduled the next six-week training class for Tuesday mornings, March 15 through April 19 from 9 – 11:30 am at the Comfort House meeting room. The deadline to sign up is Wednesday, March 9. To sign up, or for more information, call Hospice of Pella at 641-620-5054.

All hospice volunteers are required to complete the hospice volunteer training class. Each class will give participants the chance to learn more about the hospice program and philosophy as well as explore their own feelings about life and death. The class is taught by experienced hospice staff members and experts in other disciplines.
