Middlesex Looking for Hospice Volunteers

Press Release, January 10, 2020

MIDDLETOWN—Middlesex Health’s Hospice Program is looking for volunteers to work in homecare and nursing home settings.

Hospice volunteers are an integral part of the Middlesex Health team, and they work with patients and families as they cope with the challenges of terminal illness.

Aspiring volunteers must submit a volunteer application and complete 12 hours of training and a 12-hour mentorship before they can begin their work. The next training sessions will be held on April 4 from 8:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. and April 18 from 8:30 a.m. and 2 p.m. Both sessions are mandatory for new volunteers and will be held in the Randy Goodwin, MD Conference Center located at Middlesex Hospital, 28 Crescent Street in Middletown.
