Adult Volunteer Training

March 14 and 16, 2023—Caldwell Campus
March 21 and 23, 2023—Valdese Campus
March 28 and 30, 2023—High Country Campus

Are you looking for an opportunity to make a difference? Do you have the compassionate spirit needed to be a companion for someone’s journey? In partnership with AMOREM, formerly Burke Hospice and Palliative Care & Caldwell Hospice and Palliative Care, staff, volunteers serve an essential role in patient and family support, administrative and community support.

AMOREM is hosting three separate two-day in-person* trainings in March for adults who are interested in becoming hospice volunteers. To reserve a spot in the training, participants must complete an application at www.amoremsupport.org/volunteer/apply-now. *Please note that trainings are subject to be held virtually.

An array of topics will be covered to help prepare attendees to become successful volunteers. Participants will learn about the strong community history and commitment of AMOREM, the physical, spiritual, and psychosocial issues hospice patients face, and much more from AMOREM’s staff of end-of-life care experts.

Currently, there is a need for volunteers to provide patient and family support. Other specific needs include veteran volunteers to support and make Veterans Honoring Veterans presentations to patients who are veterans.

Attendance is required at both sessions and meals will be provided. For more information or to register for the March 2023 adult volunteer training opportunity, contact Director of Volunteer Services Cyndi Akins at 828.754.0101, 1.844.MY.JOURNEY, or cakins@amoremsupport.org.
