Covenant Hospice is seeking individuals who are interested in making a difference in the lives of patients and families facing end-of-life issues and in supporting the organization. A volunteer workshop will be held from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., Saturday, Jan 11 at the Tallahassee office, located at 1921 Capital Circle NE. The workshop is free and open to the public. Food and drinks will be provided.
Patient and Family Support Volunteer Training will provide an overview of hospice care, including Covenant’s programs and services and the special roles that volunteers fill. This training prepares individuals to volunteer in a variety of ways. Volunteer choices include visiting and companionship for patients, supporting family members by offering emotional support and practical help, assisting with fundraising events, providing administrative support in a Covenant office, serving as an outreach Ambassador and much more.
No special background or experience is required to volunteer for Covenant, just a desire to make a difference. Time commitment is flexible and based on volunteer availability. Retired and working professionals are also needed to share their expertise and experience with patients and families. To register or to learn more, call Lori Fitzpatrick at 575-4998.
