August can be a bit slow as the summer winds down, which makes it a great time to start a new volunteer challenge. If you have interest in volunteering for Housecall Providers, consider joining our upcoming training session. This training will consist of five four-hour sessions, and will cover a comprehensive selection of topics including: Patient care, grief and bereavement, professional boundaries, spiritual care, dementia awareness, disease process, and more.

The schedule for this next session will be:

Tues 8/13/13 – 10am to 2:30pm

Thurs 8/15/13 –10am to 2:30pm

Tues 8/20/13 – 10am to 2:30pm

Thurs 8/22/13 –10am to 2:30pm

Tues 8/27/13 – 10am to 2:30pm

Lunch will be provided for each session and there is no cost to attend. Most importantly, upon successful completion of this course, you will be qualified to serve a patient in your neighborhood. Volunteers must complete an application and interview prior to being accepted into training. Volunteers must be 18 years of age or older, pass a background check and two TB tests (provided by us) to participate in this opportunity. For more information or to schedule an interview, please contact: Todd Lawrence, Volunteer Coordinator, 360-718-0041, e-mail tlawrence@housecallproviders.org, or visit our website on www.housecallproviders.org.

Individuals are encouraged to wait a year after the loss of a significant person before serving as a Home Hospice volunteer working with patients, families or caregivers.
