Mountain Valley Hospice offers training

Mountain Valley Hospice & Palliative Care will hold a two-day Family Services Volunteer Training on June 23 and 25, at its Mount Airy office located at 401 Technology Lane (off Riverside Drive). Classes run from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. both days. All supplies, breakfast, and lunch are provided free of charge.

Candidates must have a clean criminal background history, a valid driver’s license and a desire to assist people in their community. Volunteers will learn how to offer practical support to hospice patients who are embarking upon their final journey and to patients’ families. No medical knowledge is necessary.

Mountain Valley Hospice is actively recruiting individuals over the age of 18 to visit with patients in nursing home facilities in Mount Airy. Seating for the training is limited. Call Pat Younger at 336-789-2922 for more information or to reserve your seat.
