Tabitha will offer specialized training for prospective volunteers Nov. 7 and 13, each day from 9 a.m. – 4 p.m. at Tabitha’s main campus location in Lincoln (4720 Randolph St.). Training is free and open to the public. Each participant must complete the two-day workshop to serve as a hospice volunteer.
Tabitha Hospice volunteers may provide respite care, bereavement, companionship, light housekeeping, office and clerical support while providing comfort and joy to our clients and family members. Pre-register today by contacting Susan Eichele, Tabitha Hospice volunteer coordinator, at 402.486.8506 or email
Training is conducted by professional Tabitha Hospice team members. Sessions address the hospice philosophy, communication techniques, spiritual care, understanding end-of-life issues and managing personal stress. Hospice clients may reside in their homes or a living community. An interdisciplinary team including the client’s physician, nurse, aide, social worker, chaplain, physical therapist, pharmacist, dietitian and volunteer work together to make the client’s end-of-life journey as pain-free, peaceful and fulfilling as possible. Tabitha Hospice clients and their families routinely report a high level of satisfaction with the friendship and support provided by Tabitha Hospice volunteers. For more than 30 years, Tabitha Hospice has provided support and care for persons with a life-limiting illness so they might live life as fully and comfortably as possible.

As a nonprofit organization serving 28 Nebraska counties, Tabitha’s love embraces a society where everyone is valued and empowered to live life to the fullest, with compassionate at-home support, innovative living communities, exceptional rehabilitation, health care and hospice services.
