VHOCC sets community education, volunteer training series

Volunteer Hospice of Clallam County is offering a Community Education and Volunteer (VHOCC) training series from 6-8 p.m. on Wednesday, Sept. 18, and running six consecutive Wednesdays through Oct. 23, at Hospice House, 810 S. Albert St., Port Angeles.

The series provides a history and overview of hospice and the philosophy behind VHOCC; explores attitudes towards death and dying; delves into the grieving process and self-care, and offers training for those interested in volunteering with the organization.

The sessions are open to the public and there is no charge. As space is limited, pre-registration is required by calling 360-452-1511 or email to vsm@vhocc.org.

Operating with a team of registered nurses and trained volunteers, VHOCC supports terminally ill patients and their families emotionally, physically and spiritually.

Ongoing grief support services and loan of medical equipment are also available to anyone in the community.

To learn more about VHOCC and the non-profit organization’s commitment to serving Clallam County, from Diamond Point to Joyce, visit VHOCC.org.
