Bridge Home Health & Hospice, a nonprofit organization providing home health care and hospice services, will offer training courses for prospective volunteers beginning on Thursday, June 14.

The training will be held in the Hub Conference Room at Birchaven Village, 15100 Birchaven Lane, Findlay, and will take place for six consecutive Thursdays from 6 to 8:30 p.m.

Courses will cover the basic principles of hospice, understanding the needs of patients and their families, effective communication, patient care, pain and symptom management, spiritual care giving and understanding grief and loss.

No previous hospice experience is necessary. However, volunteers must be at least 18 years old.

Following training, volunteers can choose their area of involvement, such as caregiver relief, bereavement, hospice care center, nursing home visitors, Gift of Dreams or clerical work.

Pre-registration is required. For more information or to request an application packet, contact Julie Tiell, Bridge Hospice volunteer services coordinator, by phone at 419.423.5351 or by email at jtiell@bvhealthsystem.org.

Bridge Home Health & Hospice is a division of Blanchard Valley Health System, which provides a total continuum of care to more than 100,000 households in an eight-county area.
