(11/02/10) - McLeod Hospice is offering a volunteer training program for persons interested in serving Hospice patients and their families in the Dillon area. Volunteers play a vital role in McLeod Hospice. Volunteers may make deliveries to patients' homes or provide companionship by visiting patients in their homes.
A life-limiting illness can be devastating and have far-reaching effects. Patients and their families need a solid support system during this time of crisis. McLeod Hospice provides that support.
The caring spirit and helping hands of hospice volunteers reach out to people in the community. As a hospice volunteer, individuals can choose to work directly with patients and families or help in a hundred other ways – making a difference in someone's life.
The volunteer training program will be held on Tuesday and Thursday, November 9 and 11, from 6:00 p.m. until 8:00 p.m. at Main Street United Methodist Church, 401 East Main Street in Dillon.
Attendees must register in advance if they plan to participate in the training.
McLeod Hospice serves Florence, Darlington, Marion, Dillon and Lee counties.
For more information or to register for this training, please call Andrea Mozingo, Volunteer Coordinator for McLeod Hospice, at (843) 777-2994 or 777-2564.
