What training is required?

Talbot Hospice volunteer training takes place twice a year in the spring and the fall. The comprehensive 16 hour training addresses a variety of end-of-life issues, including bereavement, the dying process, hands-on patient care and advance directives. Additional topics covered are hospice philosophy, attitudes and fears about death, spirituality, listening skills, setting boundaries, family dynamics, and cultural diversity. Talk to the Director of Volunteers, Lori Lantz, if you have questions about training.
