Hospice volunteers are currently needed throughout the Rhinelander, Tomahawk and Crandon region. Volunteers provide support to hospice patients and their loved ones in their homes, nursing homes and other residential care facilities.
There are also opportunities to get involved in outreach and fundraising for the hospice program and to assist the professional team with clerical duties.
Ministry Home Care – Hospice Services will provide free six-week volunteer training Wednesdays, April 3 through May 8, from 9 a.m. to noon at the Ministry Home Care office at 1864 N. Stevens St., Rhinelander.
This comprehensive training provides the foundation of knowledge and skill needed to provide support to patients and their families. Ongoing support and training opportunities are provided throughout a volunteer’s tenure.
There is no charge, but pre-registration is required by Friday, March 29. To register, call Melissa Houg at (800) 643-4663.
