Great River Hospice is offering a four-part volunteer training program in April. Hospice volunteers may work with patients and their families in their homes or Great River Hospice House. Volunteers also may help in many other ways, such as providing food, running errands for families, doing clerical work and planning fundraisers. Great River Hospice serves patients and families in Des Moines, Henry, Lee and Louisa counties.

The training is scheduled from 3 to 7 p.m. April 14, 16, 23 and 28 at Great River Hospice House, 1306 S. Washington Rd., West Burlington. Volunteers with previous hospice training are encouraged to join the Great River Hospice team after completing a brief, required orientation.  

To receive more information or to register for training, please call Great River Hospice at (319) 768-3350 (West Burlington office) or toll-free (877) 404-4766.
