Planning to Live to 100? Volunteer for Hospice Volunteers of Hancock County!

The end of life is a topic that can sound depressing and scary. But our volunteers report that working with those who are dying and those who are left behind is some of the most life-giving and rewarding work they have ever done. And guess what? “Research shows volunteering delays the effects of aging and extends years of healthy life. Those who volunteer have less depression, along with a greater sense of control over one’s life and higher rates of self-esteem and happiness.”  (Eric Schneidewind, President and National Volunteer Spokesperson, AARP)

 We invite you to join us for an informational session to learn more about becoming a volunteer for Hospice Volunteers of Hancock County. You will learn how our volunteers are able to provide bereavement support as well as patient care companionship and respite support for those in their end of life journeys. You will learn about the training involved, the flexibility offered, the community our volunteers find in volunteering, and how Hospice Volunteers of Hancock County differs from the medical hospice organizations with whom we work closely.

 Come join us to glean more information, have your questions answered, and explore how this important work can help you find a greater sense of purpose and fulfillment.

10-11:30 a.m
