Our own, Martha Bloss, Hospice House chairman for The Service League of Greenville was honored for her outstanding volunteer work with The Service League of Greenville Inpatient Hospice.
The hospice house cares for patients who have pain or other symptoms that are hard to manage at home. The eight-bed facility offers medical care in a home-like environment and allows hospice patients and family members to be together. Service League members who volunteer there provide non-medical support and are specially trained to assist at the front desk and to read to patients. Non-trained Service League members bake treats and take meals during the holidays for patients’ families and visitors.
