Hos­pice vol­un­teers are needed

MID­DLE­TOWN — Hos­pice vol­un­teers are ur­gently needed in Mid­dle­town to pro­vide pa­tients with com­pan­ion­ship and com­fort.

“I am al­ways amazed by the amount of times I smile with my pa­tients” said Dot, a hos­pice vol­un­teer. “It’s re­mark­able how much plea­sure we both re­ceive from talk­ing about sim­ple things.”

Con­stel­la­tion Hos­pice is con­duct­ing train­ing ses­sions all sum­mer, with new on­line train­ing that com­pli­ments in-class train­ing.

“The on­line train­ing en­ables vol­un­teers to go through the train­ing on their own sched­ule, then we can all gather and get to know one an­other. The train­ing is re­ally in­ter­est­ing, and ev­ery­one learns so many im­por­tant life lessons,” said Catharine Lloyd, Lead Vol­un­teer Co­or­di­na­tor at Con­stel­la­tion Hos­pice.
