Hospice of Homer just completed our annual End of Life and Volunteer Visitor training. Hospice would like to welcome the five newly trained volunteers. Soon each of these volunteers will be providing compassion in action to some of the individuals and families Hospice of Homer has the privilege to serve. Thank you, volunteers, for bringing your heart and skills to be of service through hospice.
