By Your Side Vigil Companions, a program of the Episcopal Communities and Services, trains volunteers to be a compassionate presence in the lives of those perhaps in Palliative Care or nearing the end of life. The next training will begin at MonteCedro in Altadena on February 6, running for 5 consecutive Monday evenings for a total of 10 hours. While graduates may go on to volunteer in hospital or long-term care settings, there is no requirement to do so.

Montecedro is located at 2212 El Molino Ave, Altadena.

The fee for the training is $70. Scholarships are available. To register and for further information, please contact: Susan Brown at ( 626) 403-5424.
