Training sessions scheduled for Feb. 21-23

LEXINGTON, N.C. (Feb.1, 2017)Hospice of Davidson County, a recognized leader in the advancement of quality end-of-life care across the Piedmont Triad region, is looking for volunteers to join its team.

Volunteers play an important role in the care Hospice of Davidson County provides to the patients and families it serves each year. The agency’s more than 100 volunteers serve in a variety of roles ranging from providing companionship for patients and families to completing administrative tasks.

Currently, Hospice of Davidson County is seeking patient-family and receptionist volunteers for service in its administrative offices, home care and The Henry Etta and Bruce Hinkle Hospice House. 

Patient-family volunteers receive specialized training, enabling them to provide companionship and caregiver support to those experiencing a life-limiting illness. The agency encourages patient-family volunteers to consider a commitment of one to three hours per week.

Hospice of Davidson County will hold an orientation and training session for those interested in volunteering with the agency Feb. 21-23 from 1-5 p.m. Training sessions will be held in the administrative building on the Hospice of Davidson County Campus, located at 200 Hospice Way in Lexington. Applications and registration are required by Feb. 14.
