Volunteer training to be offered by Hospice of San Juan

Posted September 13, 2022 at 1:33 pm by

Hos­pice of San Juan sends along news about their fall vol­un­teer train­ing class.

If you have been look­ing for a way to give back to this com­mu­ni­ty, and want to be part of a lov­ing and car­ing team, you can learn to be a Hos­pice of San Juan vol­un­teer at HSJ’s fall train­ing event. The train­ing takes place on Sat­ur­day, Oct. 22 from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the San Juan Island Grange — 152 First St N.

Thanks to the San Juan Island Com­mu­ni­ty Foundation’s Coun­ty Fair Giv­ing Cam­paign and incred­i­ble gen­eros­i­ty from the com­mu­ni­ty, HSJ is able to ful­ly fund vol­un­teer train­ing, so entrance is free and lunch is included.

Expert instruc­tors will dis­cuss the nuts and bolts of hos­pice care, talk about how to safe­ly care for oth­ers and our­selves, reveal the ingre­di­ents need­ed for good home vis­its, and mod­el how to be present for a dying per­son. Addi­tion­al­ly, the co-exis­tence of Hos­pice of the North­west and Hos­pice of San Juan will be explained.

Space is lim­it­ed, so reg­is­ter by Mon­day, Oct. 10. For more details or to reg­is­ter, vis­it the HSJ web­site or email info@hospiceofsanjuan.org.
