Faye Dolan has been a volunteer with Ascend Hospice, previously Care Alternatives, since 2009. While she is a retired nurse, her natural ability to give back and care for others continues. Faye is the go-to person when families need to be called or when patients need personal attention at their bedside. Her calming nature and her ability to be present with the patients doesn’t go unnoticed. Recently, she has been given the well-deserved promotion to volunteer supervisor in August 2016.

Besides her volunteer obligations with Ascend Hospice, Faye continues her selfless work within her community. She sets up a weekly game night for a group of elderly ladies and chauffeurs a neighbor to doctor appointments while also helping her run errands. 

Faye also takes pride in watching her nieces and nephews grow up and speaks of them with warmth and affection. She is an angel among us and gives back every day. Faye believes that being a hospice volunteer is “an opportunity to give back—to give something of myself to others.”

Thank you, Faye Dolan. You have served Ascend’s patients and their families with the love and support we promote daily. You outshine and exceed expectations and we are grateful for your contribution.

For information on volunteer opportunities, contact Ascend Hospice at 866-821-1212.
