Volunteer Testimonials

Who better to tell prospective volunteers about the Niagara Hospice volunteer experience than our volunteers themselves? Here are a few testimonials...

"I have to say this is the first organization that I have volunteered for that I truly & honestly enjoy every event that I have volunteered for. The staff at Niagara Hospice is amazing along with the other volunteers I have had the pleasure to work with and I am so proud to volunteer for Niagara Hospice." --Mary 

"When I first became a Niagara Hospice volunteer, I didn't know all the things you could do. My favorite is to take my dog Boo on visits to Hospice House. The residents look forward weekly to Boo's visits and a couple let me know when I miss a week. The smiles and thanks are priceless. My next favorite is the special meals we do for Hospice House residents a few times a year. The many, many, many thank yous we get from everyone makes it all worthwhile."--Peg 

"Volunteering for Niagara Hospice is the most rewarding thing I have ever done. I have volunteered for other organizations but I am so appreciated at Niagara Hospice. If you do an event, at least 3 or 4 people will thank you before you leave. They are just thankful for their volunteers. I volunteer to help, but it is nice to be appreciated."--Janet

"Being a Niagara Hospice volunteer has been very rewarding for me. I wanted to give back a little because Niagara Hospice helped me so much when I really needed help. I enjoy visiting with people and hearing about their lives. Hopefully, I can bring a little sunshine into their lives and make them a little more comfortable with their situation. I also enjoy interacting with family members and making sure they have everything they need."--Rita B

"Believe it or not, I look forward to volunteering. I may be having a horrendous day at work and then when I go see my lady friend it disappears. I realize that whatever was bothering me was only a moment in time. Apparently I am a cheerful presence for at least one woman. She looks forward to seeing me and always has something to share when I arrive. I don't believe there is a feeling or word to describe that."--Brenda
