Hospice of Queen Anne’s chose Wayne Larrimore as Volunteer of the Month for September. Larrimore is a devoted patient care volunteer who visits with patients in the Hospice Center and in their homes. In addition to providing comfort and companionship to hospice patients, Larrimore also volunteers as a mentor for campers at Camp New Dawn, HQA’s healing grief retreat for children, teens and families.
Larrimore was nominated for this recognition by members of the Hospice of Queen Anne’s clinical staff, who praise his devotion to providing support to families and staff that are receiving hospice care. Courtney Williams, manager of volunteer and professional services of Hospice of Queen Anne’s, says, “Wayne’s dedication to Hospice of Queen Anne’s is tireless and we are so fortunate that he makes volunteering with us a priority.”
Hospice of Queen Anne’s relies on more than 300 volunteers of all ages to perform administrative tasks, assist with events, visit patients and lend a hand in the gardens at the Hospice Center located at 255 Comet Drive in Centreville. Volunteers also operate Estate Treasures, an upscale resale shop that raises funds for Hospice of Queen Anne’s.
