Home Hospice Volunteer
Friendship and a helping hand are hallmarks of this special volunteer.
“Eileen has been a Home Hospice volunteer for a number of years and has always provided excellent care to her patients. Not too long ago, she agreed to see an elderly gentleman who lived alone and suffered from cancer. It turned out that she quickly became his lifeline. She helped him with shopping, transportation to doctor’s appointments and shared friendly companionship. When he could no longer live on his own and moved to a hospice residence, she continued her visits and stayed in touch by telephone."
“Greenwich Hospital commends Eileen on her commitment to this gentleman. She not only did a marvelous job for him, she extends this measure of warmth and kindness to all of her patients. Thank you.”
