Ascension at Home in need of hospice volunteers
For the City Times
MARSHFIELD/WISCONSIN RAPIDS – Ascension at Home is offering a free, comprehensive training course for individuals who are interested in becoming hospice volunteers.
Volunteers are assigned to roles dependent on their individual interests and abilities, as well as availability.
Ascension at Home is currently in need of front desk and kitchen help at the House of the Dove in Marshfield. This is about a two-hour commitment per shift. In addition, there is a growing need for patient support volunteers in the service area, which includes the communities of Wisconsin Rapids and Marshfield – from north to Thorp and south to Coloma/Hancock. They are also seeking sewers in the Marshfield and Wisconsin Rapids areas for the Memory Bear Program.
Personal training and ongoing support for all volunteer positions will be provided; training will be offered in Marshfield on Thursdays – March 12, 19, and 26.
