We have added another volunteer opportunity under our Hospice program. The new Bereavement Volunteers have had the first part of their training and are now being oriented by our Bereavement Coordinator in order to begin. We instituted Quarterly Lunch or Dinners as a team building experience. We served a total of 124 volunteers during these meals. Many volunteers met and learned about the experiences of other volunteers, that they would not normally see during their volunteering, widening their understanding our our organization and our services. The NHPCO We Honor Veterans program was launched. We held an inservice on the wide-ranging needs of our Veterans in our service area. All volunteers completed questionnaires about their personal and/or family service experiences, gauging their willingness to work with our veterans. Overwhelmingly the answer was yes and we learned that we have 4 veterans in our volunteer corps, all who are willing to support these clientÕs special needs.
