hospice_house_mainSoutheastern Hospice will host a training course for new volunteers interested in assisting hospice patients and their families in homes or at Southeastern Hospice House. Prospective volunteers are required to attend all sessions, which will be held Tuesday and Thursday mornings, September 8 through 27, from 9:30 a.m. until noon at Southeastern Hospice House, 1100 Pine Run Drive in Lumberton. Volunteers must consent to a background check (paid for by the agency) as well as a TB skin test and flu vaccination (also provided by the agency).

Each volunteer session is designed to increase awareness of issues important to the care of dying patients and their families, including hospice philosophy, grief, concepts of dying, family dynamics; communication skills, and aging.

Applications are being accepted through September 2, 2016. To register or for more information, contact Southeastern Hospice Volunteer Program Leader Sheryl Taylor at 910-735-8915 or taylor25@srmc.org. Southeastern Hospice and Southeastern Hospice House are affiliates of Southeastern Health.
