Seeking volunteers to work with Jewish hospice patients

Constellation Hospice, which recently received accreditation from the National Institute for Jewish Hospice, is seeking volunteers to visit patients who are nearing end of life in the greater Hartford area. Hospice volunteers spend time with patients and families offering companionship, visits and opportunities for reflection.

At this time, Jewish volunteers are urgently needed to help hospice patients of the Jewish faith the Hebrew Home and Hospital in West Hartford. These volunteers can help patients at the end of their lives reconnect with the prayers, music and traditions that are part of their past.

Hospice volunteers must be at least 18 years of age. They receive special training and can set their own schedules. A portion of Constellation’s training is online and, once completed, volunteers become Certified End Of Life Specialists.

Constellation also provides guest speakers to talk about end of life, hospice and spirituality.

For further information, contact Constellation’s lead volunteer service coordinator Catharine Lloyd at clloyd@constellationhs.com or (203) 497-3886.
