Helping Someone Who Is Grieving Topic Hospice Volunteer Meeting
June 23, 2017
Huron, S.D. – Volunteers interested in sharing your time and talents with hospice patients and their families are invited to a volunteer meeting Tuesday, June 27, at 3:00 p.m. in the HRMC Legacy Plaza Auditorium, according to Karen Decker, RN, with Huron Regional Medical Center’s Community Hospice program.
Deb Kuhler, a licensed counselor specializing in grief and loss, will share information to help others deal with their grief. She will provide practical advice on listening and supportive techniques to help comfort those who have experienced loss. The public is invited to attend and light refreshments will be served.
HRMC Community Hospice volunteers play an important role in bringing hospice’s unique services to patients and their families. Volunteers can choose to assist in the following areas:
- Patient and Family Care – provide support and friendship through listening, reading, writing letters, helping with chores, providing transportation or providing short-term relief for the caregiver.
- Special Events and Fundraising – helping at health fairs, representing hospice in the community and assisting with fundraising.
- Office Support – help with filing, typing and assembling mailings.
Hospice volunteers give of themselves to make life better for others. More volunteers are always welcome – both men and women are invited and encouraged to share their talents. Many hospice volunteers choose to give of their time helping others because of their own experiences with the compassionate care hospice provided to a loved one.
Volunteers typically meet monthly on the last Tuesday of the month. For more information on hospice, call HRMC’s Hospice department at 353-6520, or visit the hospital’s website at www.huronregional.org
