Thirteen Cedar Valley Hospice volunteers met at the Bricklynn Caf on May 5 for their monthly educational in-service. In the past, the group has always met at the Grundy Center office. But this year, Rhonda Hein, with Cedar Valley Hospice, decided to take the meetings into the communities.
"We have volunteers in Dysart, Traer, and other communities that we serve. What I want to do is take our volunteers to each community because we appreciate the community's support here so we want to support them," said Hein.
The group, out of the Grundy Center office, has about 60 volunteers and serves all of Grundy County and parts of Tama County. Cedar Valley Hospice provides care to hospice patients in their homes and nursing homes.
