For over 20 years, Hospice of Comfort, a service of Regional Medical Center in Manchester, has offered comfort, love, and respect to those on their end-of-life journey. Hospice touches lives, supports families, and strengthens communities…when a helping hand is needed most. Hospice volunteers are a crucial piece of this compassionate service. Rick Linderwell of Dundee was recognized as Hospice of Comfort’s Honored Volunteer for 2014. Rick has been a valuable volunteer with Hospice of Comfort since 2009.
“Rick provides help and companionship to clients and families in any way possible. He is always ready and willing to take on assignments, even when it means a lengthy travel time or a difficult situation,” shares Amanda Kalb, RN, Hospice of Comfort Client Care Coordinator. “We thank him for his dedication to our agency, our clients, and their families.”
Hospice of Comfort is the caring choice focusing on quality of life, symptom control, relationships, values, and choices. Hospice care is designed to help the person make the most of each hour and each day. The mission of hospice is to enhance quality of life for terminally ill individuals and their families by providing physical, emotional, and spiritual support before, during, and following the individual’s death.
