Where do you volunteer and what do you do there?: She said she volunteers for Hospice of Washington County. "I visit clients in nursing facilities - right now I am at Julia Manor and Loyalton.
"I also am a member of the 11th hour vigil, a Hospice group started in late spring. When a nurse's best assessment is that someone is nearing the 24-48 hour countdown, then we step up our time spent with the person, if the family so desires.
"Sometimes I take patients to doctor's appointments, wait there for them and then bring them back."
What prompted you to begin volunteering?: In 2003, I saw an ad on the back page of the newspaper asking for volunteers at Hospice. I interviewed and took the extensive training, which teaches what your role is and what it isn't."
