Arkansas Hospice to Host Volunteer Training in Batesville

By arhospice on April 11th, 2022

Arkansas Hospice, the state’s largest non-profit provider of hospice services, will host a volunteer training session in Batesville on Saturday, April 30, for anyone wanting to learn about the organization and its volunteer opportunities. The training will begin at 9 a.m. in the Arkansas Hospice office at 3000 Jennings Lane, Suite C, and lunch will be provided.

A vital part of the hospice care team, Arkansas Hospice volunteers are caring, committed people from all walks of life who gain a sense of satisfaction from making a difference in the lives of others. These volunteers provide ongoing support wherever a patient calls home in a variety of ways that include making personal visits or phone calls, sitting with patients to give caregivers a rest and, most of all, listening and sharing thoughts and feelings. Other volunteer opportunities include helping with office work and special events plus specialized volunteering in other areas, such as sewing and pet therapy.

All Arkansas Hospice volunteers must be trained and certified. In addition, individuals must pass a background check and driving record check and provide evidence of a current driver’s license and automobile insurance. A tuberculosis skin test and a flu shot are also required if volunteering involves direct contact with patients in addition to being fully up-to-date with COVID-19 vaccines and booster shots.

“Whatever your talents might be, you can make a big difference for our Arkansas Hospice patients and families,” said Sarah Hagerman, volunteer coordinator. “Your help is always welcome and appreciated.”

To register for the volunteer training, email or call 870-793-1938, or toll-free at 877-794-1938, from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Mondays through Fridays.
