Northfield Hospice is excited to offer Hospice Volunteer Training to members of the Northfield and surrounding communities who are interested in becoming Hospice volunteers. This training and orientation is free and open to those who can commit to at least one year of volunteering, and are 18 years of age or older.
Hospice care is provided to terminally ill patients in and around the Northfield area, and focuses on comfort rather than curative measures. Northfield Hospice volunteers:
Remember having chickenpox as a kid? It might strike again . . . as shingles.
Shingles is common: Almost 1 out of 3 Americans will get shingles in their lifetime – and adults 60 and older make up about half of all cases.
So, how do health professionals stay well when they’re exposed to germs all day? And what’s their advice for you?
