Testimonials

  • “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.”
  • “For us, to have the hospice volunteer come in every week was a godsend; she was so warm and joyful, and she truly paid attention to the particulars of our family. She learned that my sister enjoyed mystery stories so began a story which they shared each week, both looking forward to the next chapter. I know that my sister must have loved their tie together sitting outside in the warm summer air, hearing a new chapter each week.”
  • “The hospice does very important work in our community …..thank you for being there and extending your help and compassion at this difficult time”
  • “Thank you for all the wonderful weeks. ‘Hospice day’ is a highlight! Thank you as well to all the volunteers – they add so much to our day out!”
  • “A much needed and appreciated community service. Thank you.”

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
