DANBURY, Conn. -- Regional Hospice and Home Care in Danbury is looking for a few compassionate extroverts who love networking in their communities and bringing people together to support the extraordinary care hospice provides.
Are you an aspiring community activist? Do you enjoy getting groups of friends together to have breakfast or lunch for a cause? Please consider becoming a hospice chapter volunteer.
As a nonprofit hospice, grassroots support has sustained Regional Hospice and Home Care since 1983. It provides care in the Center for Comfort Care & Healing, as well as in family homes. It also offers free bereavement programs at its Healing Hearts Center for Grief and Loss.
Additional chapter fundraising volunteers are vital to supporting the increased demand for services. Regional Hospice and Home Care has eight regional chapters -- Bethel, Brookfield, Danbury, New Fairfield, Newtown, Redding, Ridgefield and Southbury -- that need your community savvy and people skills to join the ranks of dedicated chapter volunteers.
Most chapters host one event annually, and volunteers work closely with their town chapter chairman and hospice staff during the planning months of their event.
Anyone interested should contact Cathie Petrosky, community stewardship and senior writer, at (203) 702-7413 or by e-mail at CPetrosky@RegionalHospiceCT.org to fill out an application and schedule an interview with the current chapter chairman of their town.
Regional Hospice and Home Care’s team of experienced clinicians have been providing physical, emotional, spiritual and bereavement support to children, adults and their families through their palliative and hospice care program for the past 30 years.
Regional Hospice and Home Care is a nonprofit, state-licensed and Medicare-certified home health care and hospice agency. Now, with the opening of its new private-room, specialty hospital for palliative and end-of-life care — the Center for Comfort Care & Healing — Regional Hospice and Home Care can bring that same hope and compassionate care close to home and under one roof.
