Throughout the year we provide leadership and materials in many different ways, all in an effort to educate people on the benefit of choosing Hospice of Chattanooga care services. We have regular support groups, camps, special days for education on a specific topic along with a team of people who represent us at local health fairs, festivals and the like.
Hospice of Chattanooga also offers a speakers bureau, providing speakers for community groups, civic clubs, churches, schools, associations, hospitals and service organizations. Our speakers bureau is made up of spokespersons from our volunteer and administrative staff who can discuss general hospice information, end-of-life issues, explain “palliative care”, or volunteer opportunities. We will tailor presentations for the intended audience.
Should you want a speaker from Hospice of Chattanooga to make a presentation to your group, or if you would like to train as a spokesperson, please call Hospice of Chattanooga, (423) 892-4289, and ask for Volunteer Services.
