Princeton HomeCare Services Hospice Program is offering an eight-week volunteer training course in Princeton starting on Monday, March 31. The Hospice Program is seeking compassionate and caring people to visit Hospice patients who have chosen to die at home with peace and dignity and are being cared for by their families and the Hospice Program team.

The training course is scheduled to begin on Monday, March 31 from 5:30 to 8 p.m. Subsequent training sessions will be held on April 7, 14, 21, 28 and May 5, 12 and 19. Sessions will be held at 208 Bunn Drive, Princeton.

The Hospice Program serves patients in Mercer and parts of Middlesex, Somerset and Hunterdon counties. Volunteers can choose the geographic areas where they prefer to visit patients. We are currently looking for volunteers for all of the areas we serve.
