Volunteer Training

Hospice of the Prairie & Prairie Home Health volunteers are thoroughly trained in the philosophy and goals of the hospice program, as well as the care and comfort of the hospice patient.

Participants of the training are not obligated to become a hospice volunteer; the training is simply an opportunity to learn more about hospice care and other related topics.

Those who choose to be a volunteer can pick from a wide variety of roles, which include: being a friendly visitor to patients at home or the nursing home, working in the office, making deliveries, making bereavement calls, and more!
