Lewiston, Maine 7.2.13 - Volunteer support has been an integral part of Androscoggin Home Care & Hospice's services for 40 years. The Program is now widely recognized as one of the most extensive, non-profit, home health care volunteer programs in Maine.
Androscoggin Home Care & Hospice is pleased to announce that six people completed the Hospice Volunteer training held in April. Those who attended the training include Debbie Berry of Poland, Jane Jack of Auburn, Rita Melendy of Auburn, Chris Pope of Turner, Barbara Johnson of Durham and Anita Campbell of New Gloucester.
General Volunteer training prepares volunteers to visit with patients in our Home Care services who are homebound while they recover from an illness or injury or any other reason requiring home care services. This training also prepares volunteers to work in the office or at the Hospice House as a greeter or kitchen support.
“When I became a volunteer, I never realized what a big impact it would have on my life," states Bob Oliver, Volunteer for Androscoggin Home Care & Hospice. "I started to look at life through the eyes of the caregiver and patient. I then realized just how much a couple of hours of my time were worth to someone else. I love this work."
July General Volunteer Training schedule:
July 25th – Androscoggin Home Care and Hospice, 15 Strawberry Ave. Lewiston
All trainings are provided to the community at no cost. To register for one of these trainings or for additional information contact Volunteer Services at 795-9580 or 1-800-482-7412 ext. 1280.
