Catawba Regional Hospice recently welcomed 16 new volunteers to touch the lives of patients and families in local communities. Their training was held Saturday, March 4 and Monday, March 6, 2016, at Catawba Regional Hospice’s Newton campus.
The training class included 13 Catawba County residents, 2 Lincoln County residents, and 1 volunteer from Alexander County. They will all help enhance the care provided to local people throughout CRH’s 10-county service area.
Volunteers are valued members of the care team, offering needed support for patients at the end of life as well as for the patients’ families. After completing the class, volunteers will offer administrative support, provide respite for caregivers, serve as companions for patients, and help in other meaningful ways.
