Hosparus Health Needs Volunteers to Support Local Families, Offers Training April 22



Hosparus Health of Barren River (HBR) is in need of volunteers in Allen, Barren, Butler, Edmonson, Hart, Logan, Metcalfe, Monroe, Simpson and Warren counties and will offer free training on Friday, April 22, from 1 to 5 pm. CST  at its Bowling Green office, 101 Riverwood Ave., Suite B.

HBR provides hospice and palliative care to seriously ill patients and their families in their homes and healthcare facilities throughout its 10-county service area. The not-for-profit organization has offices in Bowling Green and Glasgow.

Patient/family support volunteers provide companionship to patients and respite for their caregivers. Working closely with the rest of the HBR care team, volunteers provide comfort and enhance quality of life during a very difficult time for patients and families. Volunteers may also make phone calls to patients and families from home, provide administrative support, help with community events and fundraising. HBR needs volunteers of all ages and interests.

To attend an in-person training, participants must  fill out an application at hosparushealth.org/volunteer and complete online training modules. Interested volunteers are required to provide proof of a COVID vaccination.

For more information, contact Jessica Byrd at 270.418.3715 or [email protected].
