Volunteers needed for end-of-life planning project

The nonprofit Whatcom Alliance for Health Advancement’s End of Life Choices project is recruiting volunteer facilitators who will be trained to offer advance-care planning services to adults in Whatcom County.

The community‐based project engages adults in planning for quality end-of-life care, normalizing conversations about how they want to die, and increasing the number of advance directives that are available, honored and understood.

Volunteer Facilitators are trained to guide individuals and families in discussions of goals, values and beliefs for future health care decisions.  There are also opportunities to offer community presentations.

The nonprofit organization welcomes all inquiries, but they are particularly looking for volunteers who live outside of Bellingham in Whatcom County, and who are native speakers of one of the prevalent non-English language groups (Spanish, Punjabi, Russian, American Sign Language, etc.).

A job description can be viewed online at http://www.whatcomalliance.org/volunteer/.

For more information, contact project manager Julianne Dickelman at 360-788-6526 or waha.acp@hinet.org.
