VNA Hospice offers three-day training

From staff reports

Clarion Forest Visiting Nurses Association Hospice program is seeking volunteers to be part of an integrated health care team to help ensure quality of life for persons with life-limiting illnesses.

Hospice volunteers provide companionship to hospice patients, support to family members and caregivers, assist with basic household tasks, sew Memory Bears for patients’ families, provide clerical support in the hospice office, make phone calls to patients and their families, and assist with hospice community events and bereavement programs.

VNA hospice will hold a three day volunteer training from 9 a.m. to noon on April 12, 13 and 14, at the VNA Office, 271 Perkins Road in Clarion.

For more information or to register for training, contact Ruth Stewart, volunteer coordinator, at (814) 297-8360 by April 5.
