I value life. I want to help people live their fullest possible life. I believe that people with life-limiting illnesses are not defined by their illness. Everyone has a story to tell, memories to share and new memories to make. I accept people where they are and respect the choices they have made. I have been through some things in my life that have helped me become emotionally mature and comfortable with the phases of life’s journey. Moments count and I would love to share some real quality time with someone who might be facing end-of-life challenges and wants to stay in the comfort of their own home. I know how stressful and emotional this time can be for caregivers too. And I would like to offer some time-off for a family member to take care of themselves. I can give someone 3 or 4 hours of my time each week knowing it would be valuable to me and to the individual and their family. I am in a place in my own life, where I have the time and I want to use it in a meaningful way. I am excited about participating in the hospice/palliative care training program and know that will prepare me even more to be present and compassionate during someone else’s journey. Are you a Hospice Volunteer?
