    Currently I have been volunteering at a local nursing home for eight months, with the priority of sharing God’s love and befriending residents with one – on – one visits.
    I am a retired RN and have many years of service in long term care and home health.
    I visit, read to them, write letters for them, sew fidget mats for dementia activities, and pray with them.
    I often pray with the hospice residents and listen to them.
    The Volunteer Chaplaincy Care Training program interests me, and I was wondering if this training would be beneficial for your Hospice program and enrich my service to the residents there.
