The Chaplaincy Program at Franklin Memorial Hospital announces that Hazel Doak of Farmington has completed a 100-hour training program to serve as a lay chaplaincy volunteer. Doak joins ten other trained volunteers who visit with patients and family members weekly under the direction of hospital staff chaplains. She received a certificate of completion at a ceremony held December 11 in the hospital chapel.
The chaplaincy volunteer training includes studies on topics such as ethics, religious traditions, communications skills, prayer with patients, family support, and supervised visiting.
