Lincolnland Hospice Volunteer Training

Feb 1, 2019
9 am to 4 pm

Sarah Bush Lincoln is hosting a hospice volunteer training class from 9 am to 4 pm on Friday, February 1. The class will be held at the Lincolnland Hospice office in Prairie Pavilion 2 at Sarah Bush Lincoln. Upon completion, participants will be eligible to become a Lincolnland Hospice volunteer. 

The training class will cover: history and philosophy of hospice; the role of the volunteer; family dynamics; communications; spiritual care; psychological issues; clinical issues surrounding the terminal illness; pain control; and grieving and bereavement.

Lincolnland Hospice provides medical and support services, including nursing, emotional, and spiritual care to people who are terminally ill and their family members. When a person is diagnosed with a life-threatening illness, their lives and the lives of those who love them drastically change. As a certified volunteer, participants will be there to support people in their community during difficult times in their lives.

Lincolnland Hospice serves 20 counties in East Central Illinois: Bond, Christian, Clark, Clay, Coles, Crawford, Cumberland, Douglas, Edgar, Effingham, Fayette, Jasper, Lawrence, Marion, Montgomery, Moultrie, Piatt, Richland, Shelby and Wayne.

The course is free; however, registration is required.
