“I realize the people I will be working with are terminally ill, but what diseases and conditions are common?”  This webinar will address this question, provide an overview of the most common diseases, and what volunteers may expect.  It’s helpful to understand that someone with a lung disease will likely experience different symptoms than someone with certain cancers.  The program will also review information about HIV/AIDS (less common today in hospice programs), and provide a basic understanding of the disease to assist volunteers working in end-of-life care.  By learning the various aspects of diseases, you will be better equipped to help families and patients manage changes and promote comfort.
