Posted September 13, 2022 at 1:33 pm by Jeff Arnim
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.
