Compassus – Tullahoma to Host Volunteer Training Orientation

TULLAHOMA, Tenn. – The Compassus program serving Bedford, Cannon, Coffee, Franklin, Grundy and Moore Counties will host a free hospice volunteer training orientation on Saturday, April 29, at the Compassus – Tullahoma location.

 

Volunteers are an integral part of the Compassus care team and are relied on to provide support, companionship and dignity to members of the community facing serious and life-limiting illness.

 

“Every day, volunteers touch the lives of our patients and their families,” said Julia Logan-Mayes, volunteer coordinator for Compassus – Tullahoma. “Whether simply providing companionship or a listening presence, each gesture – no matter how small – makes a meaningful impact on those we serve.”

 

During orientation, volunteers will learn about many aspects of hospice care, including listening and communication skills, patient and family rights, spiritual and cultural diversity, and patient confidentiality.
