    Covenant HealthCare Seeks Hospice Volunteers; Informational Meeting November 6

    Covenant Visiting Nurse Association/Hospice is looking for volunteers interested in providing support for hospice patients, families and staff in the areas it serves (Saginaw, Bay, Tuscola, Huron, Sanilac, and Midland counties). Volunteers select the service opportunities that most appeal to them, including patient work, journaling/last letters, faith-based services, music therapy, special events, community outreach and beautician services.
     
    Anyone interested in volunteering for this meaningful work is encouraged to contact Darcie Johnson, Volunteer Specialist, at 989.583.0254 or darciejohnson@chs-mi.com. An informational meeting/training will take place Wednesday, November 6 at the Covenant Visiting Nurse Association (500 S. Hamilton, Saginaw) from 9:00 am until 3:30 pm; advance registration is required. This will be a chance for the community to learn more about the Covenant Visiting Nurse Association/Hospice and complete the first step of basic volunteer training required for the program.
     
    Volunteers receive specialized training covering the basic principles of hospice, understanding the special needs of patients and their families, effective communication, patient care, pain and symptom management, spiritual care giving, and understanding grief and loss. Hospice volunteers are trained in listening skills, family dynamics as well as grief and bereavement.
     
    Hospice volunteers represent all ages and life experiences, but the characteristics that define and unite them are compassion and the desire to help others.
