A Gaston County Hero

by Shelly Johnston, Hospice & Palliative Care Lincoln County Volunteer Manager

Hospice & Palliative Care Lincoln County (HPCLC) would like to congratulate our third Hospice Hero, Audrey Hunt.  Audrey will be serving as a Patient/ Family Support Volunteer for the Lincoln Couny team.  Audrey currently lives with her family in Gastonia, North Carolina where she served for many years as a children’s teacher for Hope Lutheran School.  Audrey represents her Sunday school class from Sandy Plains Baptist Church (also in Gastonia), where she is an active member.

Audrey became aware of hospice volunteer opportunities through the Greater Gaston Baptist Association.  She completed her hospice volunteer training in September 2013 and began serving families soon thereafter.  She is currently assigned to two patients in long-term care communities where she provides much needed companionship.

Audrey brings her strong biblical faith, her ability to care for others, and a great capacity to listen to the HPCLC care team.  Audrey’s decision to serve as a hospice volunteer is rooted in her desire to provide comfort and dignity to others as life comes to an end.  Through her experiences at HPCLC, she hopes to give back to the community and to experience personal growth.

Audrey’s previous volunteer experience includes serving her church and Gaston County 4-H.  Thank you, Audrey,  for all you do and for being a Hospice Hero!
