Hospice Volunteer of the Month – October 2011

Phyllis was born in Mountain Home, Idaho, and at about the age of three months her family moved to Portland, Oregon. She and her husband, Mike, have been married for 20 years and have five children and five grandchildren. Phyllis has worked as a cook for Elkhorn Adolescence and has spent most of her career cooking; whether it was hiring, managing, or doing the cooking herself. About 16 years ago, Betty and Mike moved to Granite (a little place out of Baker City) to retire. Phyllis likes to play pool, read mysteries or other good novels, and does some quilting in her spare time. Phyllis stays very active in her church, her community, and helps friends and neighbors whenever possible.

Phyllis admits she was nervous for her first Volunteer assignment, and was pleased when it worked out so well! Phyllis states, “Volunteering has led me to want to help and serve others as much as I can.” She laughs and says, “It has helped me learn to deal with all sorts of people and problems.  Some of my patients haven’t talked very much, but they know I am there and I see the light in their eyes and the smile on their faces. It’s wonderful and every experience is different. I enjoy getting to know them and helping where I can, whether it is sitting by their side, holding their hand, or doing their dishes.”

Heart ‘n Home is so happy to have Phyllis as a Volunteer! Thank you, Phyllis for the work and dedication you provide to your patients.

Help us congratulate Phyllis and what she represents to all volunteers!

A Volunteer I Am

Twenty-four hours in every day,
Where can I go to give some away?
For my time is a gift, my experience is gold,
All I desire is a small hand to hold.

A tear to wipe, a child to soothe,
A lonely patient to comfort when blue,
A harried worker to lend a hand to.

There’s no need for you to strike up a band,
For I rarely seek out the fanfare of man,
I simply have time to give quite away,
To all those in need, to brighten their day.

My time is my own.
I give it for free.
A volunteer I am.
A volunteer I’ll be.

– Eileen Thompson
