OTTAWA — During National Volunteer Week (April 7 to 13), Putnam County Hospice is recognizing the 54 volunteers who bring compassion, support and friendship to those facing a life-limiting illness.
Hospice volunteers help the people they serve live every moment to the fullest by offering companionship to the patient, as well as providing respite to caregivers. In addition, volunteers offer assistance with clerical projects, special events and fundraising efforts. Hospice volunteers receive training and orientation after which they can choose their path of service.
