Our wonderful volunteer Amanda taught us so much. In the nursing home she introduced my Mother and us to musical toys that sang and danced. My Mother received great joy from these and we realize that these stimulate seniors.
It was a great comfort to have the continuity of a volunteer who knew Agnes when she was in good health and followed Agnes through to her death. It was reassuring to have a volunteer to be with Agnes. This provided respite for the family and our volunteer became part of our family team.
We want to thank Hospice Northwest for having such a wonderful program. Agnes had lots of fun, interaction, compassion and care from our volunteer. As a family we received comfort, respite and help with Agnes’ adjustment to institutional life.
