Visiting Nurse & Hospice of Fairfield County is seeking caring and sensitive individuals from New Canaan to serve as hospice volunteers.
Hospice volunteers visit terminally ill patients and their families and provide them with emotional support, respite care and companionship.
"Hospice volunteers play a vital role in supporting our hospice patients and their families and are an integral part of the Hospice Care Team," Laurie Petrasanta, volunteer coordinator for Visiting Nurse & Hospice of Fairfield County, said. "The team works together to help patients live their last days in comfort with peace, dignity and grace.
A five-session hospice volunteer training course runs Monday, Sept. 8, through Friday, Sept. 12, and will take place from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the offices of Visiting Nurse & Hospice of Fairfield County in Suite 114 at the Health and Wellness Center at I-Park, 761 Main Ave., Norwalk.
