Every connection we make with our patients, families, and community is meaningful to us. We are always grateful when we learn that our organization holds special meaning to members of the community. That’s why we are so moved when Mark Bisceglia says his connection with Ohio’s Hospice of Dayton is what brought his Dayton Nielsen team of volunteers to our campus.
“Ohio’s Hospice of Dayton has had a very personal and profound impact on my life and the lives of my family,” Bisceglia said. “My father was a patient here almost 21 years ago and my mother-in-law was a patient recently around Easter. I’ve also had grandparents that utilized Ohio’s Hospice of Dayton’s services.”
When Bisceglia was placed in charge of this year’s Nielsen Global Impact Day for his Dayton team, Ohio’s Hospice of Dayton was the first organization he thought of.
“The campus and its staff have been there repeatedly during my time of need and this was an opportunity to give back to an organization that has provided so much for my family,” Bisceglia said.
Nielsen allows its over 40,000 team members to dedicate up to 24 hours of time per year to not-for-profit organizations. Once a year, Nielsen conducts its Nielsen Global Impact Day, a day the entire company, in the U.S. and throughout the world, volunteer at not-for-profit organizations.
This year, 12 Nielsen Volunteers gave over 40 hours of Volunteer time to Ohio’s Hospice of Dayton on that day alone. During that time, Bisceglia and his team focused on beautification of the Ohio’s Hospice of Dayton campus, by planting flowers, replacing flower beds, and planting grass seed.
“I would strongly encourage anyone with a heart of giving back to consider Ohio’s Hospice of Dayton,” Bisceglia said. “The services they provide and the incredible compassion of each and every staff member, in my opinion, makes this an ideal organization of which to serve.”
We thank the Nielsen team for supporting our mission of providing superior care and superior services to each patient and family – we can’t do what we do without our compassionate Volunteers.
