Volunteers are required once each spring to complete forms indicating that they are aware of policies and up to date with policies mandated by the state and federal government. Volunteers must complete the forms and return them to the Director of Volunteer Services in a timely manner in order to continue as a volunteer for the coming year. Each volunteer who works with patients/families, or who handles confidential information must comply. These include cooks, Hospice House caregivers and companions, Doulas, receptionists, and bereavement volunteers.
Those who drive on behalf of Talbot Hospice (doulas, in-home companions) must provide proof of auto insurance and be current with Motor Vehicle Association regulations.
