Hospice Training

Interested in learning more about caring for those facing life-limiting illness?

Confused about how to help your neighbors and their families facing the loss of a loved one?

Want to learn more about offering effective help to others in your local community?


Hospice Volunteers of Waterville Area is offering a free 24-hour training course covering a variety of end-of-life issues in the area late this summer.


Consider joining us for these sessions that will equip you to be a hospice patient volunteer if you so desire.  If not, completing the training will help you to serve your neighbors or family members facing terminal illness and give you knowledge of the benefits and use of hospice care.


Topics to be covered include:

Hospice history and philosophy

Effective communication skills

Emotional and spiritual needs of the dying and bereaved

Patient care and comfort

Grief and loss

Volunteer self-care and boundaries


Meetings will be held via Zoom calls and in socially distanced locations with times and dates to be determined by registrants.  The training is offered without cost, and donations to cover material costs would be appreciated.


Please phone Jane Beers, Volunteer Coordinator at Hospice Volunteers of Waterville Area, at 207-873-3615, ext. 11 or 207-505-2840 for more information or to register.
