(p.131) Chapter 11 Volunteers working in a bereavement service
Volunteers in hospice and palliative care

Jenny Osterfield

Oxford University Press

This chapter discusses the bereavement service and the volunteers who provide such services to people who need it. These volunteers are considered as the main link to the community, since they come from different backgrounds and carry different life experiences. The discussion looks at the selection process for these volunteers, the training course, the probationary period, and finally the bereavement services.
