Did you missed the NHVP Educational WebEx on March 8, 2019? Login to view the presentation under the Education & Webinars tab.
The WebEx covered the following two topics (45 minutes each)….
1. How can volunteer programs assist with dementia patients? Join Kelly Cross as she shares about Vidant Chowan’s program Comfort Companions. Comfort Companions are volunteers that stay with dementia patients during hospital stays, if the patient is alone or the family needs a break. These dementia trained volunteers, work with clinical staff to keep the patients “entertained and busy”. With busy bags filled with activities, the Comfort Companion has tools to help them throughout their shift.
2. How to handle volunteers who should not continue volunteering due to declining health. One of the hardest tasks as a volunteer supervisor is dealing with an aging volunteer who is no longer able to perform the duties of his/her volunteer role. Join Melinda Scott to learn how to identify the signs a change is needed and how to compassionately accommodate or retire the volunteer.
If you are new to healthcare volunteer services management NCHVP will connect you with experienced professionals who will help you piece together the volunteer management puzzle.
