Hospice SLO gives an exceptional and unusual range of services in the county. The staff is extremely knowledgeable, compassionate and are wonderful advocates for those in need of hospice services. They are a gem in the community and we are so fortunate to have them based here in SLO.

Review for Hospice Of San Luis Obispo County, Sn Luis Obisp, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I arrived to the Volunteer training nervous with many questions - who would be there, what would this training be like, what emotions would it bring up, and was I prepared to move forward with volunteering at this time. Right from the beginning, it became clear that this was going to be a positive, powerful, excellent, and engaging group and training.

I have been both a participant, and also a leader, for many different types of trainings for decades. The training for Hospice SLO was superb in every way: the level of knowledge, respect, compassion and warmth towards volunteers and hospice recipients is present in each and every segment of the training. The thoroughness of preparation for volunteers is deeply caring, and exemplary.

From a personal perspective, I found this training to be deeply healing. I have experienced many deaths in my life, and although I have spent much time healing and moving through losses, being with a compassionate, knowledgeable group in this manner who are desiring to use their experiences for service is inspiring, profoundly soothing and healing. I am looking forward to participating in many of the programs.

My training at Hospice SLO was everything I hoped and much more. I felt uplifted, supported and ready to move forward with volunteering.
