Hospice Offers Rewarding Experiences for Volunteers

Posted on Wednesday, October 16, 2019 at 10:25 am

BUSHNELL, FLA. – If you have ever been a caregiver for an ailing loved one, you know how hard it can be to get out to run errands, go to an appointment or just to take a walk.

Cornerstone Hospice volunteers provide a wide-range of support to patients and their families including sitting with a patient while the caregiver gets a break, walking a patient’s dog or even run-ning to the grocery story for a home-bound patient.

Additionally, volunteers may help out in the office and community events, or honor fellow veterans. Cornerstone volunteers enjoy a flexible schedule and can choose the areas where they want to help.

Cornerstone Hospice is offering a volunteer training in Bushnell next month where participants will learn about the organization and how volunteering makes a difference for Cornerstone patients and their families.

Wednesday, November 6 8:30 a.m. – 4:30 p.m. Bushnell Presbyterian Church, 323 North Broad Street.

Participation is free. Lunch and refreshments will be provided. Please register for the training in advance by contacting Sandy Acht at (352) 242-6914 or emailing sacht@cshospice.org.
