Hospice of the Western Reserve Volunteer Education Series
Thursday, November 08, 2012
Hospice of the Western Reserve is seeking volunteers to assist in private residences, nursing homes, assisted living communities, its two Hospice House locations, and hospital settings.
As a vital part of Hospice of the Western Reserve's team, volunteers come from all walks of life, and have a variety of skills, talents and abilities.
Opportunities to serve are diverse: visit patients and families to provide companionship, socialization and comfort, help with legacy work, transportation, light housework, meal preparation, run errands, make phone calls, help with clerical work, attend health fairs and make a presentation.
Volunteers with specialized professional qualifications and training are also needed: attorneys, licensed hair dressers, massotherapists, pet therapy dogs and their handlers.
The next two eastside series of volunteer classes will be held at Hospice of the Western Reserve, 300 East 185th St., Cleveland:
• Wednesdays from Jan. 9 through Feb. 6, 8:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m., or
• Saturdays, Feb. 2, 8:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m., and Feb. 9 and 10, 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
Teen and nonclinical volunteers require attendance at the first class and four hours of self study, while clinical volunteers must attend all the classes and four hours of self study.
Pre-registration is required.
