Visiting Nurse & Hospice of Fairfield County is seeking caring and sensitive    individuals from Wilton to serve as hospice volunteers. A five-session training course will be offered Feb. 5-9, 10 to 1:30 each day, in the agency’s offices in Suite 114 at the Health & Wellness Center at iPark, 761 Main Avenue, Norwalk.  

Hospice volunteers visit terminally ill patients and their families and provide emotional support, respite care and companionship. In training, volunteers develop the skills they will need to work with patients and families and are provided with ongoing support and supervision.  

For more information, or to register for the training program, call Laurie Petrasanta, volunteer coordinator, at 203-834-6341, ext. 316.
