At Franklin Hospice, we are immensely grateful for the time and effort our volunteers put in to help our patients and their families. Volunteers play an important role in quality end-of-life care for patients dealing with a terminal illness. Please check back as dates may change due to unforeseen circumstances, thank you.

Each volunteer orientation will cover the following:

  • Franklin Hospics's goals, services, and philosophy
  • Confidentiality, HIPPA, and patient rights
  • Family dynamics and coping mechanisms
  • Psychological issues surround terminal illness, death, and bereavement
  • Emergency procedures including death of a patient
  • Supervision guidelines: who and what to report
  • Guidance specific to individual responsibilities
