"I have had the privilege of volunteering with the Heart of Hastings Hospice for a period of three years. During this time I have felt valued and made to feel as though I belong to a team that is passionate in helping those who are at the end of life. In addition to providing care to Hospice patients and their families, I feel I receive as much as I give and my life is enriched by making a difference in the lives of others.
I went to visit my client weekly and when I was there I made her bed, sometimes I shopped for groceries, helped her with laundry when the need arose, or prepared a lunch for her.Those small things made her life easier. The love and appreciation that is expressed by the patient and the family is so wonderful that I feel they have given a gift to me.
The joy of making a life a little brighter and letting them know they are not alone is deeply rewarding."
