Hospice seeking volunteers and offering training

Winona Health Hospice Services is offering training for community members interested in becoming hospice volunteers. Winona Health Hospice provides care to individuals and families within a 25-mile radius of Winona no matter where they receive healthcare services.

Hospice staff and volunteers provide respite care and emotional and spiritual support to individuals living with a terminal illness and their families, by providing compassionate care and support during an individual’s end-of-life journey.

The training includes an initial meeting on either: Monday, February 26 from 10 – 11:30 a.m. or Tuesday, February 27 from 5 – 6:30 p.m. There is also independent online education and, once complete, participants will attend one of the final meetings: Monday, March 26 from 10 – 11:30 a.m. or Tuesday, March 27 from 5 – 6:30 p.m.

Those interested are asked to contact Kris Walters, Winona Health volunteer manager by email: krwalters@winonahealth.org or call the Winona Health Volunteer Services office at 507.457.4342.

Those interested also will be asked to complete an online volunteer application.
