Seven Volunteers Complete Hospice Training
Valley County Health System's Hospice Department wishes to recognize 7 people who recently completed 16 hours of volunteer training. The new volunteers are from the St. Paul, Wolbach, Scotia, and Ord areas.
Hospice is a special concept of care designed to provide comfort, support and quality of life to patients and their families when a life-limiting illness no longer responds to cure-oriented treatment. Volunteers are an essential part of the interdisciplinary health care team who allow Hospice to provide services it otherwise could not offer. Together with the other team members, volunteers provide social, emotional and spiritual support to both the patient and family.
