Judy’s Story

“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.”

Judy

Since my retirement, I volunteer at Hospice of the Northwest in order to give back to my community.

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 realize the impact their death or graduating and being able to go back home would have on me.

I look forward to coming home from vacation and getting my next special patient.

“Human relationships are the heart of the matter, and Hospice of the Northwest offers a very carefully and thoughtfully designed way to provide meaningful relationships during a fundamental time of transition, death.”
“The greatest compensation of volunteering comes from inside ourselves as an achievement of gratitude for helping others.”
