Volunteer Training

Beloit Regional Hospice is offering volunteer training!  Volunteers are an invaluable support to hospice patients and their families. This is a two day training program and is scheduled for Saturday, October 13th and Saturday, October 27th, from 9:00 am to 3:00 pm at Beloit Regional Hospice Offices.  A light lunch and  refreshments will be provided.  Patient support volunteers assist patients and families by providing companionship, emotional support, caregiver relief, or light housekeeping as needed.  This training is designed to provide you with information on hospice care and end-of-life education including:              

  • Hospice goals, services, and philosophy
  • Communication and family dynamics
  • Active listening
  • Symptom and pain management
  • Spirituality
  • Dying, death, and the grieving process
  • Volunteer opportunities

Please call 608-363-7421 or email sswanson@beloithealthsystem.org by October 1st to reserve your spot!

This is an informal, interactive learning experience. You must attend both days, or make-up work can be provided if absolutely necessary. You can become part of our amazing group of volunteers who ensure that Beloit Regional Hospice can continue to offer pet visits, a music program, Kindred Spirits Photography, a vigil program, and much more. Bring your special gifts to help our patients and their loved ones through this difficult time!

Beloit Regional Hospice staff and volunteers are leaders in quality and compassion.  Through teamwork they advocate for appropriate care while respecting the right of patients to choose their journey, and above all hope is always embraced at the end of life.  The non-profit organization's mission is, "To help make each moment of remaining life as full and comfortable as possible," for terminally ill individuals and families in the counties of Boone, Green, Rock, Walworth, Winnebago, Stephenson and McHenry.
