Testimonials From Volunteers

I continue to be thankful to have found such a supportive family in VNA that I believe values my role in supporting patients and in turn, it feels meaningful to be able to be present for patients and their loved ones knowing how valuable that care is for them.

Tammy, VNA Hospice Volunteer

I believe my visits make a big difference in the patient’s day. Some of them are unable to leave their bed and others do not have regular visits from family members. I think that patient’s families appreciate having someone visit their loved ones regularly, and it is a joy to meet with patients who look forward to my visits.

Nasreen, VNA Hospice Volunteer

Being a hospice volunteer aligns perfectly with my personal goal of providing compassionate care to individuals in need. It allows me to directly engage with patients and their families, offering support and comfort during challenging times. Additionally, it provides me with valuable experience and insights into the heartcare field, furthering my journey towards a career as a physician.

Yosef, VNA Hospice Volunteer

“I got involved with VNA because I didn’t have much growing up, but we were always taught to give back. These clients are like my family. They need help and I’m here to give back. Another one of my clients, Greg, struggled to get to the doctor for back problems. I walked in one day, and there he was laying on the floor. He said he couldn’t make it to the doctor because he didn’t have money for a taxi cab. That’s not right. I told him to not cancel his appointments, I would personally take him. These people are like my family. They need help and I am here to give back.”

Kenny, VNA Meals on Wheels Volunteer

“I support VNA because they were such a major help to my mother while she was ill. I also support VNA because of the Meals on Wheels service they provide for people and their pets. Meals on Wheels is probably the most valuable and needed service they offer. God Bless you for all you do.”

Judy, VNA Meals on Wheels Volunteer

“I got involved because I saw the need. We as a community have the ability to give to those that don’t have what we have. I have really built a relationship with one of my clients who has really opened up to me, she is so sweet and gives me advice as a grandmother. She also tells me about her medical conditions, and that helps me know if she needs any additional help.”

Caterrias, VNA Meals on Wheels Volunteer

“I don’t think people realize how easy it is to help other people who really need your help. It is truly making a difference and it takes so little to help others…I highly recommend volunteering for VNA Meals on Wheels!”

Sharon, Meals on Wheels Volunteer

“VNA was wonderful after my mom passed away and my dad wanted to stay in the house. They’ve always made sure he had a healthy meal during the day while I was at work. The volunteers would visit with him. Thank you for all you do and for all of your volunteers.”
