If you or someone you know is interested in volunteering with Wayne Memorial Hospice, training is being offered this fall. Volunteers are asked to participate in three sessions before joining the Wayne Memorial Hospice team of medical professionals and trained volunteers. This team, part of the Hospital’s Home Health Department, provides a full range of compassionate care for the dying so they may live their lives to the fullest.
Hospice care neither hastens nor postpones death; instead, it eases symptoms of discomfort and offers scientifically advanced pain control, supporting a patient’s desire to die with dignity and with as much control as possible in the comfort of their own home.
If you have time and compassion to share with others, volunteers are needed in both Wayne and Pike Counties. Fall training will be held at Wayne Memorial Hospital in Honesdale on October 1st, 8th from 9am to 4pm and October11th from 6:30 to 8:30pm. You must attend all sessions in addition to the WMH General Volunteer Orientation. Please call 570- 253-8737 to enroll by September 28th.
