Orientation and Training
Ensuring our volunteers are comprehensively trained to complete their duties is a priority for Hospice of the Valley. Whether in a direct patient care capacity or a support function, we offer thorough training and orientation for each role and responsibility.
Anyone interested in volunteering to work directly with our patients and their loved ones is required to attend our comprehensive Training Program (25 hours) offered twice annually (in the spring and in the fall). For all other volunteer opportunities, a one-day orientation is provided. These take place four times a year. Upon completion of the training and acceptance into the program, volunteers are required to attend Support Meetings and on-going training sessions. Hospice of the Valley requests a time commitment of one year, three to five hours per week.
