The Service League of Greenville’s Hospice House Chairman Honored

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.

Angelina Brittle, Hospice Social Worker and Volunteer Coordinator & Martha Bloss, Hospice House Chairman, The Service League of Greenville.

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.

In case you missed this posting by Angelina Brittle, on Vidant Health’s facebook page:

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!!
