Patient, selfless, enthusiastic, devoted… these are just some of the words used to describe volunteers. Volunteerism is an essential part of Visiting Nurse Association of Northern New Jersey (VNA), enabling the home care organization to serve the community in personal, unique ways.
Specially trained VNA Hospice volunteers can be found visiting with hospice patients and their families, providing comfort and compassion during the final stages of life. VNA’s House Calls for Groceries volunteers take time from their busy schedules to deliver vital grocery shopping services to homebound residents in Morris County. One may also find VNA volunteers helping at Friendship House, VNA’s social adult day care center in Boonton or at VNA’s headquarters in Morristown assisting with administrative projects.
In addition to regularly scheduled visits, VNA volunteers are constantly going above and beyond for their community. Whether it’s a last minute emergency grocery shop, making an impromptu visit or phone call simply to say “Hi” or providing assistance with community outreach projects, VNA’s volunteers go the extra mile to serve others.
“VNA volunteers are inspiring and valued team members who play a key role in the success of our organization,” said Rachel Enderle, Volunteer Coordinator. “We thank our volunteers for making an immeasurable difference in the lives of others.”
Earlier this month, VNA hosted its volunteer appreciation dinner at the VNA headquarters in Morristown, NJ to honor and highlight volunteers for the immeasurable positive contributions they make serving others.
