Hospice volunteer training session offered at Ascension at Home in Rhinelander


RHINELANDER – From the beginning, trained hospice volunteers have been at the heart of the care offered at Ascension at Home. Our program is growing and more volunteers are needed.

For many years, individuals who’ve chosen to pursue volunteering for hospice have been able to explore a wealth of information about the end-of-life in their training sessions. While a prerequisite to volunteering, this free education program is open to the general public for personal growth. This comprehensive course is facilitated by various professionals on the hospice team, sharing their experiences and expertise in a dynamic, interactive format.

The next five-week session will begin soon, with classes scheduled from 9:30 a.m. to noon on Wednesdays beginning March 18 at the Ascension at Home office, 111 E. Davenport Street, Suite 101 in Rhinelander. The curriculum will provide a good foundation of end-of-life information, including presentations and discussions about death awareness, communications, family dynamics, terminal diseases and the dying process, pain and symptom management, medical ethics, end-of-life decisions, spirituality, grief, post-death rituals and self-care for caregivers.

This class will provide valuable information for people who may be faced with caring for a loved one in the future, healthcare professionals, employers, college students, or anyone who is interested in exploring becoming a hospice volunteer.

The class is free to attend, but pre-registration is required by March 11. To register, please contact Mary Ellen at 800-234-3542 or [email protected].
