Sonora, CA — Hospice of the Sierra is offering a new volunteer orientation and training session for those who may be interested in serving patients and families receiving hospice care. The orientation will be held Thursday, February 9, from 12:30 to 4:30 p.m., at Hospice of the Sierra, 20100 Cedar Road North in Sonora.
Volunteers will explore opportunities available to give back to the community through providing respite and emotional support for families, supporting people on their grief journey at Sierra Grief support groups, or providing clerical support in the Hospice of the Sierra office.
“Our volunteers are an essential part of our team, providing a tremendous amount of support for our staff and for patients and families during a critical time,” says Shauna Burrow, Bereavement and Volunteer Coordinator with Hospice of the Sierra. “Volunteering for hospice is an amazing way to give back to the community.”
