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 Wednesday, September 11 from 10am-12pm and will take place every week until October 30 at the Cornerstone VNA office on 178 Farmington Road in Rochester, NH.
Current Cornerstone VNA Hospice Volunteers recently shared, “Hospice volunteering has been the most rewarding and humbling experience of my life” and "Hospice visiting has shown me how to be present." Cornerstone VNA invites individuals to be a part of this enriching and meaningful volunteer experience. 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.
