Essentia Health-St. Mary's Hospice is looking for volunteers - people dedicated to providing humane and compassionate care for patients so that they may live as fully and comfortably as possible.
There is an especially great need for volunteers along the North Shore and in Silver Bay, for people with musical skills, and for volunteers for military veterans. Essentia trains volunteers in hospice philosophy, spiritual care, grief and bereavement, infection control and symptom management, among other things.
Hospice Volunteer Orientation Training will take place from 4:30 - 8:30 p.m. March 20, 22, 27, and 29 at St. Mary's Medical Center at 407 East Third Street, Duluth. Anyone who is interested is welcome, but you do need to call (218) 786-4020 to register for the training.
Residents on the Iron Range who are interested in hospice volunteering may call (218) 749-7975 and in the Grand Rapids area residents may contact (218)327-8780 for more information.
