The Asante Hospice team is looking for new program volunteers.

The organization will start a free, five-session course for volunteers in late June. The training course meets weekly.

Hospice volunteers provide companionship for patients undergoing end-of-life care. They keep patients company, do light housekeeping and perform clerical work.

For more information, call Sally Melton, director of hospice volunteers, at 541-789-6859.
