Why did you become a Board member?
My interest in hospice stems from prior experiences with family members and my interest in seeing a stand-alone hospice facility be developed in Aroostook County.
What are some of your skills that have helped AHOC and AHF?
I have assisted with the Investment Committee and Strategic Planning Committee (Chair of both) and volunteered at the House to occasionally cook, help with the front desk, work in the gardens, and provide the nursing staff with special chocolates on occasion.
How long have you been an AHF Board member?
I have been on the Board for more than five years.
What is unique about AHOC?
The compassionate care that is provided by the dedicated staff and supported by a team of committed volunteers is what makes the House of Comfort very special to me.
What is most rewarding about being part of AHOC and its Board?
It is very rewarding to me to work beside a group of like-minded individuals who selflessly offer their time to provide comfort and care to individuals and their families during their time of need.
