Androscoggin Home Care & Hospice Announces New Hospice Volunteers & May Trainings
Lewiston, Maine 4/17/13 - Volunteer support has been an integral part of Androscoggin Home Care & Hospice's services for 40 years. The Program is now widely recognized as one of the most extensive, non-profit, home health care volunteer programs in Maine.
Androsocggin Home Care & Hospice is pleased to announce that seven people completed the Hospice Volunteer training held in January. Those who attended the training include Richard Bennett of Bridgton, Craig Hacker of Sweden, Sue Hunt of New Gloucester, Lorraine Jarden of Auburn, Elaine Robitaille of Turner, Joanne Wheeler of Pownal, and Laura Reynolds of Lewiston.
"When I became a volunteer, I never realized what a big impact it would have on my life," states Bob Oliver, Volunteer for Androscoggin Home Care & Hospice. "I started to look at life through the eyes of the caregiver and patient. I then realized just how much a couple of hours of my time were worth to someone else. I love this work."
