Lee County Hospice Volunteer Training

Written by Theresa Rose on February 13, 2018

Volunteering can be defined in many ways.  A volunteer assists an organization with projects.  A volunteer cares enough for the organization to help without pay.  Lee County Health Department Hospice volunteers are an essential piece of their hospice program.  They care for patients and their families during the last stages of life’s journey.


For those interested in learning more about hospice and volunteering LCHD-Hospice will hold their Hospice Volunteer Training from March 6 through March 27, on Tuesday evenings from 6:00-9:00pm at the LCHD office (#3 John Bennett Drive, Fort Madison).  Interested volunteers will learn from LCHD staff and current volunteers about the hospice experience, and how to help families in this final stage of life.  Volunteers are needed from Lee, Henry, Van Buren, and Des Moines counties in Iowa, and Hancock and Henderson counties in Illinois.  If you have questions about the training or would like to register call (319)372-5225 or (800)458-6672 by March 2.
