Hosparus seeking local volunteers

Staff Report

Hosparus Central Kentucky needs volunteers in Breckinridge, Grayson, Hardin, LaRue, and Meade counties, and will offer free training from 5:30 to 9 p.m. on Wednesday, Oct. 7 and Thursday, Oct. 8 at its Elizabethtown office, 105 Diecks Dr. Participants must attend both sessions.

Volunteers provide companionship to patients and respite for their caregivers.

Working closely with the rest of the Hosparus care team, volunteers provide comfort and enhance quality of life during a very difficult time for patients and families.

Volunteers must be in good health, have available transportation, and complete a training and application process. All volunteers also must receive an annual flu shot, and those working directly with patients must receive an annual TB test. Both are provided by Hosparus.

To register, or for more information, contact Annette Jones at 270-737-6300 or ajones@hosparus.org.
