(Windsor-Leamington, ON) – Nov 3, 2013: There is no greater gift than helping another person. Volunteers at The Hospice of Windsor and Essex County give selflessly of their time, energy and resources to assist patients and families affected by life-altering diagnoses. From holding the hand of a patient through the night so the family can rest, to cooking meals and assisting nurses and personal support workers, volunteers in the Hospice Residential Home are at the heart of patient care.
The Hospice is excited to be expanding services into South Essex County and in preparation for our 10-bed satellite Residential Home campus, volunteer recruitment has begun with gusto. A volunteer information session, hosted at Leamington District Memorial Hospital on Wednesday, November 13 at 6:00 p.m. will be an opportunity for prospective volunteers to find out more about how they can help. The evening will include a presentation about the Hospice, volunteer training and available roles in the Residential Home.
We invite all interested people from Windsor-Essex, including Leamington, Harrow, Kingsville, Essex and Wheatley to join us for light refreshment and discover how to make a difference in the lives of patients and families throughout the region.
Participants are asked to RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org or call 519.974.7100 ext. 2272. Free parking at the Hospital will be available.
The South Essex County Volunteer Recruitment Information Session will take place on Wednesday, November 13th, 6:00-7:30 p.m., at Leamington District Memorial Hospital.
