Ohio’s Hospice of Dayton is seeking volunteers who are willing to crochet, quilt or knit…
Belinda Post became one of the first Hospice House ambassadors when volunteer services introduced the program at Dayton’s Hospice House in 2003.
Belinda retired as secretary for Central Presbyterian Church in Miami Township after 20 years in 2002.
“I had been looking for something meaningful to do in retirement,” said Belinda. “I saw the care Hospice of Dayton gave my mother in 2002, and I wanted to help in any way I could.”
In the beginning she served as ambassador on one shift. She said she is drawn to the patients and now serves two days a week for 10 hours. “Just being with people touches my life,” said Belinda. “One memorable visit was when I helped a gentleman downstairs to see his wife, who had not opened her eyes for days. When he stroked her hand, she opened her eyes, and they had a special moment. And that gave me a special moment, too.”
