HRMC Hospice Volunteer Meeting Set for February 23
February 19, 2016
HURON, SD – Volunteers and individuals interested in sharing their time and talents as a hospice volunteer are invited to attend the monthly hospice volunteer meeting Tuesday, February 23, at 3 p.m. in the HRMC Legacy Plaza Auditorium, according to Karen Decker, RN, with Huron Regional Medical Center’s Community Hospice program.
A video entitled “At Death’s Door: Facing the Terminal Illness of a Loved One,” which provides excellent insight on living life to the fullest with a dying loved one, will be shown. Anyone who has a family member or friend who has a terminal illness is encouraged to come watch this powerful video and receive information on Anticipatory Grief.
“Death teaches us that we don’t know what the future is going to be, “says Rabbi Dr. Earl A. Grollman, author and featured participant in the video. “We must invest each day with as much meaning as possible.” Through the experiences of bereaved family members who share their stories, “At Death’s Door” will help family members acknowledge and understand their emotions about the terminal illness of their loved one and guide them to live fully through the last months, weeks or days of their time together.
In addition, an annual review of policies and volunteer review of core hospice information will be completed. Anyone interested in becoming a hospice volunteer is welcomed to attend and explore this rewarding community service.
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 and click on the Services/Departments tab.
