In May Compass Regional Hospice will offer a training session for individuals interested in becoming a patient care volunteer. This session will be held on Tuesday, May 1 through Thursday, May 3 from 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. at the Presbyterian Church of Chestertown, 905 Gateway Drive in Chestertown. Attending all three days of this session is required for volunteers who wish to provide companionship and support to our patients and their loved ones in Queen Anne's, Kent and Caroline counties.

“Volunteers are a vital part of the care we provide,” says Courtney Williams, Manager of Volunteer and Professional Services for Compass Regional Hospice. “It is all about helping others and being there when they need you; whether that is in our hospice centers in Centreville, Denton and Chestertown, or wherever a patient calls home.”

Topics include an overview of hospice; the process of dying; spiritual care and its place in hospice care; the stages of grief; effective communications techniques; family dynamics; stress management; and self-care for caregivers.

Compass Regional Hospice relies on more than 300 volunteers of all ages to support its mission of “Care on your terms.” These individuals volunteer their time in a variety of ways. Whatever your motivation to volunteer, there is a place for you at Compass Regional Hospice.
