“Honoring Veterans at the End of Life” – Volunteer Mandatory In-Service

 

VolunteerJournal

 

Every year, volunteers who support patients in the home or in one of our five inpatient CareCenters, are required to attend at least (1) one mandatory training program. In March, the Volunteer Department will be hosting our first group of training workshops.

*This is a change for Midwest CareCenter volunteers. In the past, Midwest volunteers have been required to attend an annual in-service event. This event will no longer be required. Instead, volunteers can complete their in-service requirement by attending any authorized training workshop offered during the year.

The subject of the March workshop is Honoring Veterans at the End of Life. This program will explore the unique experiences and health concerns of veterans based on their time of service. JourneyCare’s participation in the “We Honor Veterans” national initiative—a pioneering program focused on respectful inquiry, compassionate listening and grateful acknowledgment—will be discussed. By learning more about the unique needs veterans have at the end of life, we are better able to accompany and guide them and their families towards a more peaceful ending.

The workshops will be led by Linda Rockwell, MPN, Manager of Veterans Programs. Each event will be hosted in a different location. The Barrington event can also be attended remotely from your home computer via GoToWebinar.
