Hospice volunteers wanted

Visiting Nurse & Hospice of Fairfield County is seeking caring and sensitive    individuals from Wilton to serve as hospice volunteers. Those who are interested may register to participate in a five-session hospice volunteer training course beginning Monday, Nov. 5, and continuing through Friday, Nov. 9.

Training will be held from 10 to 1 each day at the agency’s offices in Suite 114 at the Health & Wellness Center at iPark, 761 Main Avenue (Route 7), Norwalk.  

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

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