Since 1977, Hospice SLO County has depended on the generosity and time of volunteers to provide our free services to San Luis Obispo County residents who are facing a life-limiting illness, end of life, or grief. This comprehensive 18-hour training explores:

  • Personal attitudes about death and dying
  • Boundaries and communication skills
  • Dementia care and compassion fatigue
  • Anticipatory grief and bereavement
  • Spiritual, practical, and emotional support needs of clients and families including family dynamics

Our training class meets on Tuesdays for six weeks.
