Hospice of Scotland County is holding a training session Feb. 21-23 for anyone who is interested in becoming a hospice volunteer.
There are many ways to volunteer including visiting with the residents, working at fund raising events or helping in the office.
Denise Riggins, director of volunteer services at Hospice of Scotland County, said they are always looking for volunteers to help.
“It takes a committed group of volunteers with a wide range of talents to keep our organization running smoothly. We encourage anyone who is interested in giving back to the community to sign up for our volunteer training course,” she said.
Training will be held from 6 to 9 p.m. on Feb. 21 and Feb. 22 and 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Feb. 23.
All three sessions will be held at Hospice of Scotland County’s office on 610 Lauchwood Dr., Laurinburg. Riggins encourages participants to attend all three sessions.
Space is limited, so anyone interested in volunteering must register before the training sessions.
Hospice care is for patients who are considered to be in the last six months of life, as certified by a physician.
Since 1986, Hospice of Scotland County has provided end-of-life care to people in the community. A team of professionals and volunteers, including physicians, nurses, social workers, chaplain, and bereavement counselor, provide care for each patient and family that is served.
