Nothing will ever be the same, personally or professionally, if correctly trained as a hospice volunteer
Volunteering in hospice is a choice that creates rewards for patients and families. The ultimate surprise is the growth a volunteer develops from learning more about themselves, learning to communicate in ways that increase appreciation for life as daily situations take on a holistic perspective.
Hospice volunteer training can be done conveniently at home or wherever there is access to a computer.
The hospice volunteer program is designed to help strengthen the understanding of hospice for volunteers and those seeking more information on caring for a loved one with a terminal illness.
Training is $10 for the full hospice volunteer training program and can be accessed at www.volunteertrainingonline.com/courses
*Note: On site hospice training programs are not replaced by this course. The training addresses the core concepts that Medicare Conditions of Participation require for hospice volunteer services. After completion of training, the student must complete agency specific protocols to volunteer with hospice. For example, background check, required health screening and agency policy and procedures.
Hospice agencies can request a service agreement to have their own personalized site. The agency can train their own volunteers and be billed monthly for $10 per volunteer and a low $10 monthly site fee. The site fee includes set up of a unique site, technical support, and certificates for graduating volunteers with the hospice agency name on the certificate. The service agreement may be accessed here.
