April is Volunteer Appreciation Month and Sarah Dodd, District Long Term Care Ombudsman with the PADD office, expressed her appreciation to all of the ombudsman program volunteers.

“I have Friendly Visitors and Advisory Council Volunteers and they are all great people that care about the residents in the nursing homes and personal care homes,” she said. “I could not ask for a better group of people to work with. I appreciate each and every one of my volunteers. I want to thank all volunteers in the community as well that go out of their way to help others in need and for donating their time.”

Her volunteers include Jennifer Morris, Brent Carman, Crystal Williams, Brenda Whitford, Sandy Garland, Annette Wathen, Sue Hopkins, Shelba Payton, Priscilla Dick, Teresa Thompson, and Jenna Morgan.

If someone would like to become a volunteer, please contact Dodd at 270-251-6120.
