NILES – Hospice of the Valley’s new volunteer class will be 1 to 4:30 p.m. Fridays, March 7 through April 4 at St. Joe’s at the Mall, Eastwood Mall, Niles (behind Sears).
Volunteers will learn what Hospice of the Valley’s team of doctors, nurses, social workers and chaplains do for patients and their families and how volunteers fit into that team. Hospice volunteers serve in a variety of ways including companions for hospice patients at home or in nursing homes as well as helping at the Hospice House inpatient facility. They also provide respite services to family members.
New volunteers are needed for all areas of Mahoning, Trumbull and Columbiana counties and western Pennsylvania. Volunteer assignments are made close to the volunteer’s home.
Another training program is planned for 9 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. at the Martin-MacLean-Altmeyer Funeral Home, 15872 Saint Clair Ave., Calcutta, Ohio.
