Features Health & Wellness Four Seasons is offering volunteer training classes

Four Seasons, a local provider of end-oflife care services, will be offering its volunteer training classes to all those who would like to learn about or enhance care-giving skills. The information provided is useful in any setting, from homes to facilities.

Attendance does not require a commitment to become a Four Seasons volunteer. A wide array of volunteer opportunities will be covered, and all areas of interest are welcome.

An orientation class (required for all volunteer positions) will be offered at the Four Seasons’ WNC office on the grounds of the Highlands-Cashiers Hospital Campus will be held Wednesday, March 14, from 1 to 4:30 p.m.

Four additional training classes will be required for those who wish to be involved in patient care (home care, nursing care, assisted living facilities). These classes will be held at the Deerfield Retirement Community in Asheville.

Full patient care training will not be offered at the WNC office at the Highlands- Cashiers Hospital until May. All patient care classes can be completed through DVD training series for those who cannot attend.

For more information or to register for any of the above classes or to register for the May orientation and patient care training classes, contact The Volunteer Department at 1-866-466-9734 (toll free) or This e-mail address is being protected from spambots.
