Meet the Board

the board of health and hospiceIn February Boquete Health and Hospice Foundation elected a new board.   David Wulf- President, Merl Will-Wallace-Vice-President, Linda Sanchez-Secretary and Laurie Collier-Treasurer. Bev Tyler is the administrator of BHHF. The board held a retreat in March to formulate the goals of the organization for 2017. The goals include plans to create more community awareness of the services provided by BHHF, expand the volunteer base, reach out with services to more people in the Panamanian and expat community and to have a health fair later in the year.

2017 Volunteer Training  

volunteer training Boquete Hospice and Health
On February 17, 20 and 22, thirteen members of the community
made the choice of taking the Boquete Health and Hospice
Foundation training.
The training consists of an overview of all the requirements, information
and skills needed to help our community with health issues. Some of the topics include:
Explanation of services, discussion of grief and death and dying
Presentations about comfort care, medications used in Panama
Communication skills that include how a team is put together for a case, caring for the caregiver and final directives.
For almost a decade BHHF has been helping the community by providing support for patients and caregivers when there is a serious illness, an injury, after surgery, or if the patient is dying. We also provide a blood donor list and loan durable goods such as wheelchairs, hospital beds, oxygen concentrators, walkers and other medical equipment.
It takes a caring heart and dedication to become a volunteer of BHHF. Be watching for the announcements for future volunteer training sessions.
