Hartford HealthCare at Home seeks hospice volunteers
Story Number is : 012918100
PROVIDED
Hartford HealthCare

Friendly volunteers are welcome to join the Hartford HealthCare at Home Hospice Care team to visit hospice patients, provide respite for weary caregivers, be a listening ear, connect with patients’ goals, assist with bereavement or spiritual support, share gifts of music or art, visit as a registered pet therapy team, or help with clerical projects.

The Hartford HealthCare at Home volunteers provide 400 hours each month to individuals and families in central and Eastern Connecticut. Volunteers visit based on their individual schedules.

Free training is provided so volunteers can be educated and feel valued in their role by understanding the history and philosophy of hospice, clinical aspects of dying, communication skills, family dynamics, issues of spirituality and religion, and grief and bereavement.

Visitors are needed to connect with hospice patients in Berlin, Cheshire, Danielson, East Hartford, Enfield, Glastonbury, Groton, Hartford, Manchester, New London, Newington, Norwich, Plainfield, Putnam, Waterbury, Waterford, Watertown and Wolcott. Volunteer clerical support is needed in Southington.
For more information, call John Roush, volunteer coordinator, Hartford HealthCare at Home & Hospice, (860) 951-6997.
