MAKE A DIFFERENCE AS A HOSPICE VOLUNTEER
Needed Now • Adventist Health Hospice
Needed Now-Throughout the Portland Area Adventist Health Hospice patients need your gift of time as a volunteer! There is no experience needed to be a Patient Companion Volunteer--just a compassionate heart for people and the desire to make a patient’s remaining days as fulfilling as possible. It is about the gift of your presence and spending just a little of your time to sit with those who are facing the end of their lives. Sometimes, it’s just to talk or read to them or share stories and laughter...at other times...you could help record a life history, play music, cards or board games with them, and even share a hobby with them. It’s as individual as you are. Help me match you with a waiting need. Caregivers need the blessing of your time to take care of themselves. This allows them to return “recharged” to tend to their loved one. Hospice patients sometimes have no family and can be greatly moved by your presence. These are momentous gifts. And there are numerous options in how you can help. Volunteers work out in the field - in patient’s homes, adult care homes, or nursing homes, wherever a patient might call home. The hours are flexible, whether you can commit a few hours a week, or just a few hours a month. We provide thorough training. If you feel called, please contact the Adventist Health Hospice Volunteer Coordinator at 503-251-6192, ext. 56420 or by email at email@example.com.
VEGETARIAN FOR BEGINNERS COOKING CLASS

Meat and animal products play an adverse role in determining the health we enjoy. The risks of developing diseases such as heart disease, diabetes, kidney disease and cancer are potentially avoidable when we choose a plant-based diet. Are you interested in moving to a vegetarian diet, but hesitate because you think it would be tasteless or limiting? You can enjoy a variety of colorful fruits and vegetables without compromising your taste buds. Learn tips to transition to a meat-free diet and what to include when planning a vegetarian diet in “Vegetarian for Beginners.” Our menu this month: Chicken Pineapple Gravy over Rice –TVP Taco Meat– Posole – A flavorful Mexican soup. The class will be held on October 2 at 6:30 pm at the Eugene Adventist Church, upstairs in the church fellowship hall. Assistance is available for those needing help getting upstairs.
