Celebrating National Volunteer Week
Dear Palliative Care Volunteers,
Your warmth and caring, your understanding and compassion, your generosity of spirit and all the small gestures that you give so freely without hesitation every single time is why we thank you so very much.
Greeting everyone with a smile at reception, lending an ear to those who need someone to listen, helping the medical team care for patients, keeping the rooms spotless, providing clean linens, fresh coffee, baking special recipes, preparing meal trays, bringing a little beauty and colour to everyone with the gardens, providing entertainment by feeding the birds (and squirrels), lending support to our administration team, helping with fundraising events, regardless of weather, and so much more!
On behalf of the Vaudreuil-Soulanges Palliative Care Residence, my heartfelt thanks to you, our amazing team of dedicated volunteers, who make every day possible.
Volunteer Coordinator, VSPCR
