Special training for hospice volunteers, who will work with terminally ill patients, begins Wednesday, Feb. 27. The training includes hospice philosophies, pain control, communication and working with grief.

Hospice work provides volunteers an opportunity to deeply serve others while learning more about themselves.Volunteers contribute about four hours a week in the patient's home and become an integral member of the caregiving team.

Classes will be held at 2970 S. Main, Salt Lake City. For more information, call 486-2186.
