Hospice volunteers make people’s lives better

National Volunteer Week is April 21 – 27, a time to recognize and celebrate the thousands of men, women and young people who volunteer in communities across the country.

We have some special volunteers at Community Hospice who deserve recognition for the work they do to ensure those at the end of life find comfort, love and respect.

More than 200 volunteers at Community Hospice give of their time and expertise to support people during one of life’s most challenging experiences and they should be honored for the care and compassion they provide every single day.

They spend time at the bedside, help out family caregivers, participate with our community outreach effort and assist in the office and at the Care Center. They also provide fundraising support.

I encourage others to learn more about hospice by contacting Community Hospice at (606) 329-1890 or (800) 926-6184 or visit our website at www.chospice.org.
