Volunteer Story: Sally Lyle

“You get back double what you give.”

Sally Lyle, Hospice Volunteer, shares her story: “I stay because of the people. I love working with each of them. You get back double what you give. Knowing that you have helped the patients and their families, or staff, it’s a wonderful feeling, and it’s doing a good thing!”

If you stroll through the administrative building, on any given day, you may see volunteer Sally Lyle. For nine years, Sally has helped the Volunteer Department in various ways; from maintaining volunteer databases, organizing charts, tracking training notes, and performing patient follow-up. Sally is an integral component of the Volunteer Department.

Originally from Rochester, NY, she retired from nursing after 40 years. In the 1970s, Sally assisted hospice patients in a home health setting. She always remembered that experience, and upon retirement chose to volunteer at Hospice & Community Care after meeting some of our staff and volunteers through her work with York Technical College.

We are grateful to Sally, and hundreds of other volunteers, who give their time, talents, and gifts to Hospice & Community Care.
