Testimonials

  • “’Thank you’ just seems inadequate for the group of people that are Beth Donovan Hospice as an organization. You not only gave Joanie a chance for dignity and respect but you gave her, myself and the kids the greatest gift of all; your support granted her wish to live, and I do mean live, her final moments at home surrounded by love and laughter.”

  • “I am amazed at the talent pool right here in the community. It has been a wonderful experience at the Day Hospice and I came with a very skeptical attitude in the first week.”

  • “A much needed and appreciated community service. Thank you.”
  • “The hospice does very important work in our community …..thank you for being there and extending your help and compassion at this difficult time”
  • “There were still things to get organized: I needed assistive devices in the home and had no idea how or where I was going to find them let alone the funds. Once again there they were, “What do you need, let’s check and see what we have”; Raised toilet seat, bed rail, wedge pillow, and volunteer driver they were there every step. Once we got home our needs changed quickly; we now needed a commode and wheelchair. I panicked … one frantic text to our Home Visiting volunteer and one phone call to Beth Donovan Hospice and 2 hours later we were equipped for the weekend and the next chapter in this journey.”

Volunteer Share

  • “Being a hospice volunteer is an amazingly rewarding experience. Being able to give comfort and support to families while they are facing a very difficult time, or being able to give them a few hours a week even just to sit and chat, can mean so much to them. I am proud to be part of this wonderful organization and have formed lasting friendships with other volunteers as well as the staff.”

    Sandra Mackenzie, Home-Visiting Volunteer

  • “When I lost my mother and mother-in-law, the hospice and palliative care they received meant the world to us. I knew then it was my volunteer calling. Weighed against other volunteer experiences, this is by far the most meaningful for me. When it comes to end-of-life, we can’t fix the situation or alter the course, but we can make the journey a little better along the way. To ‘make the best day possible’ for clients and their families, that’s my hope.”

    Daryl Webber, Home-Visiting Volunteer
