Hospice names Palmatary Volunteer of Month
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.
