Volunteers and staff members from Infinity Hospice Care came together to celebrate Infinity Hospice Care’s annual Volunteer Appreciation Luncheon. This annual event is held in Las Vegas, Nevada and Phoenix, Arizona to recognize our hospice volunteers in coordination with National Volunteer Appreciation Week.
Becoming a volunteer for hospice is an opportunity that most people pass by, however, one young man in particular took the call to action and became a volunteer with Infinity Hospice Care two (2) years ago. Under normal circumstances this might not be “news worthy”, however, Albert is a high school student.
“In the past two (2) years Albert has volunteered over 300 hours of his time to our organization. He has had the opportunity for several experiences; from friendly visiting with patients, phone call follow-ups, and a presentation to his fellow high school students about the value of volunteering. Our team of professionals has witnessed growth in Albert’s maturity, responsibility and work ethic. Albert will be entering college this fall. We believe his hospice volunteer experience has enriched not only the lives of the patients he served but his own as well,” says Bonnie Marcet, Community Coordinator for Infinity Hospice Care Phoenix, Arizona.
Becoming a volunteer for hospice is an opportunity to help serve OUR community by giving back to persons whom are experiencing a life-limiting illness. The story of Anna, one volunteer who has taken this opportunity to new heights, was told at the luncheon.
“Ana came to Infinity Hospice Care to become a volunteer almost two (2) years ago and has volunteered nearly 200 hours in that time. Ana has had the opportunity to touch the lives of many patients that we serve with friendly visiting, however, not only has she impacted their lives by her volunteer work, she has also changed her own life. Anna saw how hospice works and the support it brings to our patients’ lives and their families, she took this as a calling for her own life and recently became a Certified Nursing Assistant. Ana hopes to work in hospice someday soon so she can give back more,” says Dee Dee Williams, Volunteer Coordinator for Infinity Hospice Care in Las Vegas, Nevada.
Hospice volunteers bring light and love into people’s lives. Infinity Hospice Care volunteers are a valued member of the team. As a volunteer you help support the mission of providing dignified and compassionate care to persons and their families who are experiencing a life-limiting illness.
National Volunteer Appreciation week was April 10th-16th this year. We are grateful to all the volunteers who help support Infinity Hospice Care and our mission.
