Am I Prepared for the Job?
The Volunteer receives training before any assignments are made. Volunteers are shown how to handle the required paperwork, taught techniques and skills to communicate.
Volunteers can help define their role at Hospice of Havasu by telling us about special skills, talents and interests they have.
Every effort is made to help the Volunteers in their job, including providing mentors to accompany you on initial visits, if desired.
