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.

We have a very special #VidantThankYou to the Service League of Greenville. They donated sodas to stock our inpatient hospice house kitchen for our patients, their families and visitors to enjoy. Words cannot express how much comfort something like this can bring to our families.

Our thanks to Angelina for the lovely posting, Martha for organizing this, and all who donated!!
Service League of Greenville members were among those honored during Vidant Home Health and Hospice’s annual volunteer appreciation luncheon on April 6th. Our members share their volunteer time and talent at Hospice House through general patient and family interactions, administrative tasks, bereavement calls, home visits, home cooked meals, and assistance during special events.
To all who volunteer at Service League of Greenville Inpatient Hospice House, we join Vidant Home Health and Hospice in saying “thank you for your selflessness and dedication to serving hospice patients and families.”

During Vidant Home Health and Hospice’s Annual Celebration of Life Memorial Service on November 1st, Service League members were on hand volunteering their service with set-up, refreshments and clean-up.
From Angelina Brittle, a note of appreciation and pictures:
Thank you to those who volunteered for the November 2016 Celebration of Life event. The event was well-attended, and it was a beautiful evening with many family and friends, live music, delicious food and camaraderie. Hosting an event with many helping hands makes it much easier, and we so appreciate your willingness to give your time, energy and help setting up the food for all!
