Volunteer Training Scheduled to Support Hospice Patients in Butler & Warren Counties

Ohio’s Hospice of Butler & Warren Counties will hold a new volunteer orientation on Wednesday, October 11. 

Hospice volunteers play a vital role in the interdisciplinary teams serving hospice patients and their families, providing a variety of services including respite care, shopping, delivery of medications and supplies, transportation support, massage, beautician and barber services and gardening.  Volunteers also serve as ambassadors sharing information about hospice care, as friendly visitors and in office support roles. Volunteer training acquaints new volunteers with information on

  • History and goals of end-of-life care
  • Hospice history
  • Role of Volunteers and opportunities
  • Confidentiality, infection control, and safety
  • Boundaries
  • Effective listening
  • Loss and grief

Maureen Swarts, Volunteer Services Manager, says the contribution of volunteers is invaluable.  “Volunteers give from their hearts and enable us to touch the lives of patients and families with enhanced compassion and care. They are essential to our mission of providing superior care and superior services.”

To become a volunteer, an application and two references are required, and all volunteers are required to complete a background check that reflects no criminal history before participating in training. For additional information please visit www.hospiceofdayton.org/volunteers/
