Volunteer Testimonials

"The volunteers helped keep my mother at home. She was so independent, but really needed the help. They brought groceries for her, helped with dishes and did little household chores. One lady brought her meals twice a week. It truly helped us keep her at home where she wanted to be."

"My sister was so afraid her children would forget her when she died. The social worker and volunteers helped her make a memory book for each of the children and tape videos of her reading books for them. They also helped her write a letter for each of their children to receive on their birthday each year until they were grown. She was so grateful and it gave her such comfort."

"My father was never lonely after we admitted him to hospice. Between the volunteers, nurses, social worker, and chaplain, he had company every day and sometimes several times a day."
