Volunteers Are Essential to Arbor Hospice Patients and Families
Posted: April 28, 2014
April was National Volunteer Month and Arbor Hospice is extremely grateful – all year around – for the more than 300 volunteers who dedicate their time and talents to Arbor Hospice. Volunteers play an essential role in upholding the mission of Arbor Hospice. They provide support in a variety of ways – patient companionship, caregiver reprieve, administrative support, photography, videography, pet therapy or serve on our board of directors. And each one of them is appreciated for their unique talents and special skills. The annual observance of National Volunteer Month provides an opportunity for organizations to thank their volunteers, but it is important to remember that volunteers deserve appreciation all year long!
