Meet a few of our wonderful volunteers
I was first introduced to the Residence at the end of 2011 when my mother became a patient. Although a short experience, over the next ten days, I was exposed to the compassion and care of the staff and welcomed into what seems to be a forever expanding family. I cannot put into words the attention and love that myself and my mother felt from both staff and volunteers daily. Following my mother’s death, I told myself that I would give my time as a volunteer and do my best to reciprocate the feelings and good moments I experienced to each and every family member and patient that came through the door. I have been a reception volunteer ever since. Each person’s story is unique and each experience different, however my feelings of fulfillment and happiness after each shift remain a constant.
