Suzanne Richman of Berlin, pictured, was called to serve as a hospice volunteer at CVHHH after her parents utilized hospice at separate times as they approached death and could no longer safely care for themselves. “The infinite patience and compassion and skill of my parents’ nurses, aides, social workers, and physical therapists intertwined to make them the guides that our family needed.” Suzanne saw this same compassion in CVHHH’s hospice team. “There was a sense of deep regard and respect for the patients and their families in the way Jim Budis, CVHHH’s Hospice & Palliative Care Manager, and Nicole Dupont, Hospice Volunteer Coordinator, spoke. It reflected the kind of humanity that I want to be a part of.”
Join Suzanne and become a CVHHH hospice volunteer. Healthcare experience is not required. All that’s necessary is a caring, can-do attitude and a desire to make a difference in someone’s life.
