Amedisys Hospice is planning classes to train hospice volunteers.
Anyone 16 and older can volunteer to visit with patients and their caregivers or do other special projects.
Hospice volunteers do not provide medical care. They provide emotional support and do things to brighten the day of those with terminal illnesses and their caregivers.
“You will make a difference in their lives, and they will make a difference in your life,” said Martha Dodge, volunteer coordinator.
