Celebrating Volunteers

“There’s a misconception that it’s a sombre, low-pace place”, says volunteer Dena Pruski who makes cinnamon rolls every Wednesday. “But there is nothing better than when a family, who has someone actively dying, can sit in this kitchen and laugh, tell stories and share. Have a release.”

In their own words, the stories below highlight the satisfaction and benefits our volunteers feel they receive through their experiences with our palliative care patients, their caregivers, and families.
