Delaware Hospice announced that a Delaware Hospice volunteer received an award at the 2019 Governor’s Outstanding Volunteer Awards in Dover, which was held on October 29.
Terry Andrews of Milford was selected for the Human Needs Award for his dependability, dedication, and generosity of time and spirit toward Delaware Hospice. Winners of the Human Needs Award are individuals who volunteer to provide services to the elderly, people with disabilities, families, and/ or children. Melody Cline, Delaware Hospice Volunteer Coordinator recounts a touching situation where Terry went over and beyond his volunteer duties. “We recently had a patient that needed to visit the Delaware Hospice Center for symptom management. Neither him or his caregiver drove and the patient did not feel comfortable in an ambulance.
“Thank you to Terry for his tremendous support of Delaware Hospice,” commented Susan Lloyd, RN, MSN President and CEO of Delaware Hospice. “Without our volunteers’ dedication in a variety of areas, Delaware Hospice would not be able to service close to 10,000 clients each year.”
