KishHealth System Hospice will be offering its next volunteer orientation and training class starting in September at the KishHealth System Hospice office, 2727 Sycamore Rd., DeKalb. Direct care volunteers are a part of an interdisciplinary team serving terminally ill individuals and their families. The class is open to all individuals, those interested in becoming Hospice direct care volunteers and those who simply want to learn more about KishHealth System Hospice.
The training class will provide an overview of the history and philosophy of Hospice, as well as help class members learn how to respond to the social, emotional and spiritual needs of the terminally ill and their families. Additionally, class members will receive guidance and support while exploring issues involved in the dying and grieving processes.
The class will be held beginning Sept. 15 through Oct. 20 on Tuesdays, from 6 pm to 9 pm. There is a registration fee of $20 to help cover the cost of materials. Registration is required, as space is limited. Please contact Sue A. Goudy, Volunteer/Transitions coordinator at 815.756.3000 to register.
