Vidant Home Health and Hospice Volunteer Training

Each day our Vidant volunteers help deliver the high-quality, compassionate care our patients and their families deserve.  Many volunteer because they want to give back to their community, believe in the mission of Hospice, or have personally experienced the support of hospice care with a friend or relative at the end of life.  Would you be interested in becoming a volunteer?

As a volunteer, you will be able to give back to your community in a gratifying, intellectually stimulating, and emotionally meaningful way. Volunteers are able to determine how much time they give each week, typically up to 2-4 hours or more depending on your personal preference and availability.

The 16 hour training is especially designed to prepare Volunteers to perform this vital service. All training is provided free of charge by Vidant Home Health and Hospice Volunteer Coordinator.

Our next Volunteer Training is Monday, February 20, 9am-4pm, and Tuesday, February 21, 9am-3pm.  It will be at Vidant Home Health and Hospice, Service League of Greenville Inpatient Hospice, 920 Wellness Dr., Greenville, NC 27834.  Click here to download a flyer.
