A Hospice Volunteer who joins this team will often bring help and services to which patients and their families may not have access. Even without a medical background, a hospice volunteer has gifts they can offer.
Before visiting patients or families, Namaste volunteers are interviewed by the Volunteer Coordinator, and must complete 10 hours of training. All volunteers must have proof of COVID19 vaccination, pass a background check, and complete all necessary paperwork. Training sessions are offered as needed, usually once per month. Training is conducted virtually.
