To The Daily Sun,
Right here in our community, six trained volunteers are working with Franklin VNA and Hospice and giving selflessly to others nearing the journey at life's end. They give of themselves to ensure that our friends, neighbors, co-workers under hospice care find dignity, hope and love. Our community is a better, more compassionate place because of their service.
April 23-29 is National Volunteer Week and every single volunteer deserves our appreciation and grateful acknowledgement.
These volunteers tend to patients at the bedside, support family caregivers, help families during one of life's most stressful periods, raise awareness, provide grief support, help raise funds, and so much more.
Hospice volunteers make more special moments possible for the patients and families they serve every day and are integral members of the hospice team.
An estimated 430,000 trained volunteers give more than 19 million hours of service every year in hospices across the country, reports the National Hospice and Palliative Care Organization. During National Volunteer Week, these dedicated individuals deserve our appreciation.
We encourage others to learn more about hospice by contacting Franklin VNA and Hospice at 934-3454.
