Hospice of Hilo is looking for volunteers willing to be a part of its team, providing compassionate end-of-life care and support to the East Hawaii community.

The next volunteer training sessions are 8 a.m.-5 p.m. Saturday, Aug 18 and Saturday, Aug. 25.

According to Volunteer Manager, Pearl Lyman, “Hospice of Hilo volunteers are called upon to perform an array of supportive services; including patient care and feeding, respite care, bereavement care, transportation, companionship, shopping, errands, active listening and reading, as well as office administrative support, community education and public relations.

“And now with the opening of the Pohai Malama a Harry & Jeanette Weinberg Care Center there will also be a need for cooking, gardening and even playing the piano,” Lyman said. “Our volunteers give so much, and ask for so little. They meet the families where they’re at and they journey with them through the unknown. I am so lucky to work among these wonderful people.”

Volunteer Nancy Molitor said it’s all about, “Caring for all humanity.”
