Volunteer Training Schedule

Enrich your life. Become a Regional Hospice Volunteer.

One of the most important things our volunteers can offer our patients is time: time to sit with them, listen to their stories and share their lives. Time to offer caregivers a break from the challenging task of caring for a loved one with a life limiting illness. If you have time to share, please consider becoming a Regional Hospice volunteer. Regional Hospice provides all volunteers with a thorough training program for the education they need to feel confident to help our patients and families.

“To anyone considering becoming a hospice volunteer, do it. It was one of the best decisions I ever made. You will meet dedicated Regional Hospice staff, wonderful families and patients who are able to be at home or at a care facility with quality of life and comfort care.”

Jeannette, Regional Hospice Volunteer for 26 years
