New volunteer training will start October 14. Sessions will be held twice weekly on Tuesday and Thursday afternoons from 1-4 p.m., concluding October 24. Training will take place at Good Sam's Roanoke office, 2408 Electric Road, Roanoke.
Hospice Family Support Volunteers work directly with our terminally ill patients and their families, visiting 2-4 hours each week. They are often asked to sit with patients while their families run errands or take needed time away. They bring loving companionship to homebound patients or those in facilities. No experience is needed, only a caring heart.
Please pre-register by Tuesday, October 8. Please contact Rayelle Williamson at 540-776-0198 for an application and more information.
