Nov 7, 13 TABITHA OFFERS HOSPICE VOLUNTEER TRAINING


Tabitha will offer specialized training for prospective volunteers Nov. 7 and 13, each day from 9 a.m. – 4 p.m. at Tabitha’s main campus location in Lincoln (4720 Randolph St.). Training is free and open to the public. Each participant must complete the two-day workshop to serve as a hospice volunteer.
 
Tabitha Hospice volunteers may provide respite care, bereavement, companionship, light housekeeping, office and clerical support while providing comfort and joy to our clients and family members. Pre-register today by contacting Susan Eichele, Tabitha Hospice volunteer coordinator, at 402.486.8506 or email Susan.Eichele@Tabitha.org.
 
Training is conducted by professional Tabitha Hospice team members. Sessions address the hospice philosophy, communication techniques, spiritual care, understanding end-of-life issues and managing personal stress. Hospice clients may reside in their homes or a living community. An interdisciplinary team including the client’s physician, nurse, aide, social worker, chaplain, physical therapist, pharmacist, dietitian and volunteer work together to make the client’s end-of-life journey as pain-free, peaceful and fulfilling as possible. Tabitha Hospice clients and their families routinely report a high level of satisfaction with the friendship and support provided by Tabitha Hospice volunteers. For more than 30 years, Tabitha Hospice has provided support and care for persons with a life-limiting illness so they might live life as fully and comfortably as possible.

As a nonprofit organization serving 28 Nebraska counties, Tabitha’s love embraces a society where everyone is valued and empowered to live life to the fullest, with compassionate at-home support, innovative living communities, exceptional rehabilitation, health care and hospice services.
