Hospice Visits

As a Hospice volunteer I am sometimes asked to visit patients who welcome visits. For the most part, I volunteer time in working at the Garden of Life, but I enjoy visiting people, too.

When I was asked to visit this older man, something prompted me to ask if Rusty could go with me. Rusty loves people and is a great ice breaker when I meet new people. It turned out that he was very willing for Rusty to come. He had dogs all through the years but is without a pet right now.

Rusty took to him right away and he really enjoys Rusty’s visit. I’m glad that I thought about taking Rusty with me. It’s not only good for my new friend, it’s been very good for Rusty, too.

About NJ

I love to write! I realized in 9th grade that I really enjoyed writing. Every two weeks we had assigned topics that we were to use to write an essay. I liked writing the essays. I'm a mom and a grandma. None of my family live nearby, but they visit when they are able to come. I've been a pastor's wife and a grade school teacher. Now I'm retired and enjoying visiting others, and indulging myself in my hobbies, --writing and art activities. I'm very thankful for the blessings in life.
