Pemi-Baker Hospice & Home Health (PBH&HH), a leading provider of compassionate end-of-life care in central and northern NH, is thrilled to announce the start of its highly anticipated Hospice Volunteer Training Program. This comprehensive training initiative is designed to equip individuals with the necessary skills and knowledge to serve as hospice volunteers, supporting patients and their families during their end-of-life journey.
The five-week training program will start on October 10th, 2023, and will take place in-person, every Tuesday from 2:00pm to 4:00pm. Participants will have the opportunity to engage with experienced hospice professionals who will share their expertise and guide them through various aspects of hospice care. This training aims to prepare volunteers to provide emotional support, companionship, and practical assistance to patients and families facing life-limiting illnesses.
Susan Varnum, Home Care, Palliative Care and Hospice Director at PBH&HH, expressed her enthusiasm for the program, stating, “Medicare recognizes the importance of treating the whole person, not just their medical disease, as part of the Hospice experience, which is why a robust team of individuals are involved in Hospice care. Volunteers are an integral part of Hospice providing unconditional support to patients and caregivers based on the volunteer’s availability, comfort and training.”
To participate in the Hospice Volunteer training program, interested individuals are encouraged to pre-register by October 5th, 2023. To secure a spot in the training or for further information, please contact Susan Varnum, Home Care, Palliative Care & Hospice Director, at 603-536-2232 or via email at email@example.com.
