Heart for Hospice? Be a Hospice of Pella volunteer

Do you have a heart for Hospice? Be a Hospice of Pella volunteer. These important volunteers are members of the community that donate their time in service of those Hospice of Pella serves. The goal is to match a volunteer’s strengths and interests to the needs of the patients and their caregivers. At this time, Hospice of Pella’s greatest need for volunteers is at the Comfort House and those who can provide transportation.

Hospice of Pella has scheduled the next six-week training class for Tuesdays, March 18 – April 22 from 9 - 11:30 am at the Comfort House. The deadline to sign up is March 14. To sign up, or for more information, call Hospice of Pella at 641-620-5050.

All hospice volunteers are required to complete the hospice volunteer training class. Each class will give you the chance to learn more about the hospice program and philosophy as well as explore your own feelings about life. The class is taught by experienced hospice staff members and experts in other disciplines.

Many times the role of the volunteers is behind the scenes, but the full scope of all that the volunteers do is commendable. Whether it’s reading to a patient, weeding the garden or running much needed medication to a hospice patient in their home, the volunteers are an important part of the team.
