WEBINAR DETAILS

When looking at expanding volunteer services, there are two great programs to consider: tuck-in and 11th-hour services. An 11th-hour program focuses on providing support and “presence” for families when death is near. Tuck-in services assist in preparing families for evenings, weekends, or times of reduced staffing, thus lessening the need for on-call services. Both programs can be offered either at the bedside or virtually, making them a good fit for volunteers who are reluctant to drive or make face-to-face visits. This webinar will explore the processes necessary to expand volunteer services by looking specifically at everything that goes into the development of these two programs.

  • Hospice
