Progress Continues

Wendy Chapman from Lifetime Care Hospice gave our first training session.

Our first volunteer training session was held on Saturday, February 4, 2017 and was attended by over 20 people. We think that is a great start! We will be holding more training sessions and if you are interested in becoming a volunteer, please give us a call at 315-651-1240  (yes, we now have a phone!) or you can still email or reach out to us on Facebook.

We have added to our website a Wish List.  Items that we are looking are still in need of and some will be ones we will continually need as we take care of our guests and their families.  There will also be a link to our Amazon wish list  and to  Amazon Smile .  When you use Amazon Smile to make any of your Amazon purchases a donation is made to the charity of your choice.  We hope you will take advantage of this to help Pathway Home of the Finger Lakes.

Looking for Volunteers

Calling all Volunteers! As we draw closer to opening the doors we are looking for volunteers to help out at the home. We are most in need of volunteers to be:

  •  Caregivers  to help provide hands on care for our guests. Hands on care includes bathing, dressing, and other activities of daily living. Sometimes our caregivers will need to give medications.
  • Companions will be there to sit with someone, talk, read to them, fluff their pillows or get them a drink.

Once open we will need help with the administrative side of things. Sending out thank you letters to our donors, helping with fundraising events such as the Fall Gala and Spring celebrations.

No matter what you volunteer to do our volunteers will be there to support our guests and families. Offer a smile, cup of coffee, a hand to hold or an ear to listen, no gesture is too small.

We are offering Volunteer training for all our volunteers. The first session is in early February.  The topics are about communication with guests and families and what physical changes may be seen as someone is ending their journey.

If you are interested in becoming a volunteer  please send us an email at pathwayhomefl@gmail.com (or click the green button in the upper right column) or call 315-651-8527.
