Volunteer Spotlight: Liam Neary

Name: Liam Neary

How long have you been a volunteer?
One-and-a-half years.

What areas do you work in/what sort of tasks do you do as a volunteer?
Delivering products and medications to patients.

What made you decide to become a volunteer?
My wife Charlotte is a volunteer and I saw how happy volunteering made her.

It was the eight weeks of volunteer training with Syndie [Angela Hospice Director of Volunteer Services] that changed my life. It became an honor to be able to do this for someone. I’ve taken medications on a Saturday in a snowstorm to Belleville…it’s just something that I’m happy to do. 

What is your favorite part about volunteering?
Giving back; that’s it. It’s the joy that you get from helping someone.

Liam delivers products and medications to patients so
he's often on the move.
What is one of your favorite stories or memories from volunteering?
I guess the thanks that you get from someone. Often times it’s not the patient themselves because they are bedridden or they’re elderly or they’re in another part of the house, but their caregiver who is so appreciative of what you have done.
