Visiting Nurse & Hospice Care Recruiting Volunteers for Autumn Training Program

Visiting Nurse & Hospice Care is recruiting hospice volunteers for its 2015 fall training program.

Volunteers are important members of the VNHC hospice care team, and they make a real difference for patients and their families by providing companionship, running errands or filling in so a family member can take a break.  

“The contributions of trained volunteers are critical to our goal to provide compassionate and skillful care to those who are facing a serious illness or end-of-life issues,” said Arlene Stepputat, manager of volunteer services at VNHC. “There are a variety of opportunities for volunteers to provide support and assistance to our patients and their families.”

The fall training will be held from 1–5 p.m. five consecutive Tuesdays: Oct. 6, 13, 20, 27 and Nov. 3, 2015.

The deadline to apply is Monday, Sept. 28. Applications can be downloaded at

For more information or for scheduling conflicts, please call Arlene Stepputat at 805.690.6274 or [email protected].

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
