Hospice plans Feb. volunteer classes
Hospice of the Western Reserve is seeking volunteers to assist in private residences, nursing homes, assisted living communities, its three Hospice House locations, and hospital settings.
Opportunities to serve are diverse: visit patients and families to provide companionship, socialization, and comfort; help with legacy work, transportation, light housework, and meal preparation; run errands; make phone calls; help with clerical work; attend health fairs; make presentations.
Volunteers with specialized professional qualifications and training are also needed: attorneys, licensed hair dressers, massotherapists, pet therapy dogs and their handlers.
The next series of volunteer classes will be held Feb. 2 and 9 at Hospice of the Western Reserve, 300 E. 185th St. in Cleveland, from 9 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Non-clinical volunteers attend only the first four hours on Feb. 2, while most other volunteers attend all classes.
Pre-registration is required. For more information, or to register, call the volunteer team at 216255-9090.
