Our comprehensive 30-hour In-Home Volunteer Training will begin on Thursday, October 17, 2019. Classes will be held on Thursdays, 1:30 – 6 pm at Hospice SLO County in San Luis Obispo.

Topics include:

  • Exploring personal attitudes about dying and death
  • The history of hospice and current medical and non-medical approaches to end of life care
  • Communication skills
  • Spiritual, practical and emotional support needs of clients and families including family dynamics
  • Anticipatory grief and bereavement
