Volunteers Help with Spring Cleanup
Posted on 05.14.15 in Events, News

The winter months are finally behind us and the lush green grass, blossoming flowers, and budding trees have begun to reveal themselves as the summer months approach. Yesterday, a group of volunteers and staff members worked together to clean up our grounds by picking up trash, digging up weeds, laying down new soil, trimming trees and flower bushes, and raking leaves. Although it was a slightly chilly day, with the sun shining and mini Hershey’s chocolates and Kit-Kat bars to satisfy our taste buds, it made for an enjoyable and productive evening!

I would like to thank the following volunteers who participated in the Spring Cleanup: Gwen Timmons, Elizabeth Wayne (and her son), Kristi Link, and Erin Stilwell. Their willingness to help in any way is just one of the many reasons I am proud of our volunteers and all they do for Lake Superior Hospice and our community.

April 12-18 is Volunteer Appreciation Week!
Posted on 04.13.15 in News

Here at Lake Superior Hospice we have a group of over 60 volunteers who dedicate their time to making a difference in the lives of our patients, their families, and our community. There are many ways to define what a volunteer is, but to us, they are the heart of hospice. Our volunteers are compassionate and loving people who go above and beyond in their duty as a hospice volunteer. Whether it’s making friendly visits with patients, providing caregiver relief, helping at the office, assisting with fundraising events, being a presence in the community, and so much more, they are all an important member of our hospice team. We couldn’t be more proud of them for their service and dedication to Lake Superior Hospice- we just want to say THANK YOU and we appreciate all that you do!

Honoring Our Veterans
Posted on 02.26.15 in News

Walking through the Jacobetti Home for Veterans is an experience in remembering that we have everything we do have because our men and women in uniform have given everything they had. And many still do.

Lake Superior Hospice does not take those sacrifices lightly. Every military veteran admitted into Lake Superior Hospice, be they at home, in assisted living, at a nursing home or the Jacobetti Veterans Facility receives an 8 x 11 Certificate of Honor and Appreciation for the time and sacrifice given on behalf of their country.   And, if they were married at the time of service the spouse also receives an honorary lapel pin because LSHA recognizes that services to one’s country exacts a price on family, as well.

Lake Superior Hospice is proud to recognize those who have served above and beyond the call of duty in order that the rest of us may continue to serve in other ways. Thank you Veterans and families.
