Genesys Hospice volunteer training begins next week

(GENESEE COUNTY, MI) Training for Genesys Hospice volunteers begins Tuesday, Feb. 1 and runs every Tuesday and Thursday evening from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m., through Feb. 24. Training takes place at the Genesys Hospice Care Center, located at 7280 St. State Road in Goodrich.
Hospice volunteers are needed to visit patients in their homes, provide companionship, offer respite and serve in many other capacities - offering transportation, delivering or picking up medical equipment, writing letters for patients, reading to patients, performing light housework duties and offering bereavement and spiritual care support.

Volunteers also are needed at the Genesys Hospice Care Center, a 22-bed facility located in Goodrich. This center provides residential hospice care for terminally ill patients as well as inpatient level of care for symptom management.

Training focuses on the hospice philosophy, developing listening skills, gaining awareness of feelings regarding death and dying, patient care, spiritual care and bereavement.

If you would like to sign up to serve as a Genesys Hospice volunteer, or would like more information about the training program, call 810-636-5021.
