LAFAYETTE, Ga. – The Life Choice Hospice program serving LaFayette and the surrounding areas is proud to recognize Debbie Dodson and all hospice volunteers during National Volunteer Week April 12-18 for providing companionship, support and dignity to hospice patients and their loved ones. Life Choice Hospice is part of the Hospice Compassus family.


“We are proud to recognize Debbie for her efforts to honor life and offer hope to individuals facing a life-limiting illness by supporting them with compassion, integrity and excellence,” said Jacquelyn Chesnutt, RN, Executive Director for Life Choice – LaFayette. “Debbie’s positive attitude and contributions make her a dedicated member of our team, and we are fortunate to have her as a volunteer.”


“Volunteers help make our mission a reality here at Life Choice,” said Dr. Suzanne Storey, Medical Director of Life Choice – LaFayette. “This National Volunteer Week, we are pleased to honor Debbie for going above and beyond to help in any area where she is needed. She is a valuable member of the team here in LaFayette and she brightens everyone’s day the moment she walks into our office. I want to thank her and all of the volunteers on our team for their true dedication to our patients and families.”


According to the National Hospice and Palliative Care Organization, there are an


estimated 400,000 trained hospice volunteers providing more than 19 million hours of


service to hospice programs each year. Hospice volunteers add to the care provided by physicians and other hospice staff by bringing companionship to people in the final months and weeks of life, providing respite to families and caregivers, and supporting the administrative responsibilities of hospice programs.
