ROCHESTER - Cornerstone VNA, a nonprofit home health and hospice care organization, is offering a free training for individuals interested in becoming a Hospice Volunteer. For as little as 4 hours per week, volunteers can offer companionship, respite care and their own unique skills to patients and family members in their community.
This comprehensive 8-week Hospice Volunteer Training program focuses on how to provide comfort, support and a reassuring presence to Hospice patients and their families. No medical or volunteer experience is necessary to make a positive difference.
The next training will begin on Sept. 11 from 10 a.m.-noon and will take place every week until Oct. 30 at the Cornerstone VNA office on 178 Farmington Road in Rochester.
To register for this training or for more information about the Hospice Volunteer Program, please contact Nancy Nicolazzo, Hospice Volunteer Coordinator at 603.994.7041 or NNicolazzo@cornerstonevna.org.
