St. Elizabeth Hospice volunteer classes scheduled for July

LAFAYETTE, Ind. — The St. Elizabeth Regional Hospice in Lafayette has scheduled their summer hospice volunteer training classes for new volunteers to work with hospice patients and their families in your area.

Class sessions will be on the following dates and times:

  • Saturday, July 19: 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
  • Monday, July 21: 5 to 8 p.m.
  • Wednesday, July 23: 5 to 8 p.m.
  • Monday, July 28: 5 to 8 p.m.
  • Wednesday, July 30: 5 to 8 p.m.

All sessions will be held at the Kathryn Weil Center for Education. The Kathryn Weil Center for Education is located in the Medical Arts Building, 415 N. 26th St., Suite 400 in Lafayette on the Home Hospital campus.

Volunteers provide non-medical services to hospice patients and their families that include a break for caregivers, patient companionship, listening and emotional support, basic bedside comfort measures or assisting with shopping, yard or household chores. Volunteers can be a wonderful support for families during this difficult time.

Those who have lost loved ones within the last year are strongly encouraged to wait for at least one year before volunteering for direct care with our hospice families; however interested persons could volunteer to provide office support.

For more information, to request an application packet or to register for the class, please contact Diana Salazar, St. Elizabeth Hospice volunteer coordinator, at (765) 423-6924 by July 12.
