Record Observer - - Senior Satellite -

CEN­TRE­VILLE — Com­pass Re­gional Hospice re­cently chose Lynda Pal­matary of Cen­tre­ville as its Vol­un­teer of the Month.

Pal­matary vol­un­teers her time in a va­ri­ety of ways for Com­pass Re­gional Hospice. Aside from help­ing in the of­fice and as­sist­ing dur­ing spe­cial events, Pal­matary reg­u­larly sees pa­tients in the Hospice Cen­ter and in area nurs­ing homes. As a pa­tient care vol­un­teer, she sup­ports pa­tients who are re­ceiv­ing hospice ser­vices by pro­vid­ing com­pan­ion­ship through weekly vis­its, of­fer­ing their fam­i­lies respite.

“Lynda jumps right in wher­ever she can help. She is a fa­mil­iar face around the Hospice Cen­ter, and the staff knows they can count on her,” said Court­ney Wil­liams, man­ager of vol­un­teer and pro­fes­sional ser vices.

Com­pass Re­gional Hospice re­lies on more than 300 vol­un­teers of all ages to per­form ad­min­is­tra­tive tasks, as­sist with events, visit pa­tients and lend a hand in the gar­dens at the Hospice Cen­ter, 255 Comet Drive in Cen­tre­ville. Vol­un­teers also op­er­ate Es­tate Trea­sures, an up­scale re­sale shop in Chester that raises funds for hospice.
