Volunteer FAQs

What training is required?

Talbot Hospice volunteer training includes a comprehensive 16 hour training which 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. Volunteer roles that do not involve direct patient interaction require less training.
