Volunteer Hospice Training - Feb 23

Mayne Island Assisted Living Society

MIALS is proposing the creation of a Hospice Volunteer Training program to fill the need in our community for ongoing support to Island members with life threatening illnesses.

We are holding a meeting on Wednesday, February 23 at 7:00pm at the Health Centre to discuss the possibility of creating a volunteer hospice training program.

In order for us to create a program for our Island that meets the needs of our community and reflects the services that we can ethically, safely and effectively perform, we need the assistance and collaboration of the many skilled professionals in our community: Medical/Emergency Professionals:  Doctor, Nurse Practitioner, Community Nurse, Home Support Workers, Mayne Island Volunteer Fire Fighter’s Association, and the Ambulance Service.

Island Groups: Silver Maynes, Health Centre Association, Mayne Island Assisted Living, Lions Club, and Senior Resource Centre.

Interested Individuals:  All welcome.
