Talbot Hospice Offers Volunteer Training


“My hospice training has redirected my life and opened doors that have transformed me.” A Talbot Hospice Volunteer

Talbot Hospice will hold its bi-annual Volunteer Training beginning October 8. If you are interested in giving back to our community in a meaningful way, consider becoming a Talbot Hospice Volunteer. Perhaps you love to cook or garden. Maybe you play a musical instrument. Talbot Hospice has specific needs for dinner cooks, musicians, greeters, breakfast cooks (especially weekends), caregivers (especially weekends), and gardeners. Talbot Hospice also needs individuals to visit patients in their homes and in facilities, make check-in phone calls, shop for groceries, and transport patients to appointments and on errands.

Topics covered during training include hospice purpose and philosophy, admission criteria, volunteer roles, HIPAA and confidentiality, attitudes and fears, death and dying, spirituality, listening skills and boundaries, family dynamics, cultural diversity, grief, hands on training, and standard precautions.

If you’ve been looking for your passion and calling and would like to learn more about volunteering at Talbot Hospice, contact Director of Volunteer Services Lori Miller at lmiller@talbothospice.org or 410-822-6681.
