McLeod Hospice has rescheduled its Volunteer Training previously scheduled for September 9 for Thursday, September 21 from 1 p.m. until 5 p.m. in the McLeod Seacoast Auxiliary Room at 4000 Highway 9 East in Little River. The “Hospice Volunteering 101” class is for persons interested in helping Hospice patients and/or assisting the Hospice support staff in Horry County.
Volunteers play a vital role in McLeod Hospice. They may make deliveries to patients’ homes or provide companionship by visiting patients in their homes. Volunteers may also provide massage therapy, pet therapy or play a musical instrument for patients.
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.
Attendees must register in advance if they plan to participate in the training.
For more information or to register, please call Kelly Shooter, Volunteer Coordinator for McLeod Hospice, at (843) 366-2028.
