Hospice seeks help

Hospice of the Foothills is looking for volunteers. Hospice provides support for individuals who have a terminal illness and their families. There is no direct charge for Hospice services.

Volunteer training classes will consist of 21 hours, preparing the volunteer to be comfortable providing companionship to patients and respite to their caregivers. In addition to respite duties, Hospice is in need of certified massage therapists and/or body and energy practitioners, i.e., Reiki, therapeutic touch, licensed beauticians and barbers. These specialized services are needed by patients who are unable to leave their homes.

Classes are March 29, 31, and April 2, from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. For more information and applications, call Jennifer Andrews at 272-5739, Monday through Friday, from 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
