I volunteer at Hospice to give back to my community since retirement. I have loved getting to know the dedicated staff and volunteers who are so compassionate and giving to our patients. I feel I have contributed to our patients and their families by visiting and listening to their concerns. My mother and brother were on Hospice and were given such great care. I feel as a volunteer we receive the greatest reward of all by being with these patients and just listening to their needs or wishes. I didn’t know the impact their death or graduating and being able to go back home would affect me. I look forward to coming home from vacation and getting my next special patient.
