Barnabas Health Hospice and Palliative Care Center is hosting two training programs in our area for individuals interested in becoming a hospice volunteer. There are nine-week and five-week programs available.

The nine-week program starts Tuesday, September 20, and runs from 6:30 to 9 p.m. It will be held at the Barnabas Health Corporate Office in West Orange. There will also be a five-week option starting Monday, September 26, from 10 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. at the same location.

The volunteer training program is designed to give participants an understanding of the needs of patients and families who are coping with advanced illness. Program topics include Hospice History and Philosophy, Hospice Nursing, Spirituality in Hospice, Personal Death Awareness, Listening, and the Nuts and Bolts of Volunteering. Upon completion of the program, volunteers will be connected with patients in close proximity to where they reside.

For more information, or to register for a training program, please contact Spiro Ballas at 973-322-4866 or e-mail [email protected].
