We are proud to announce that our Volunteer of the Month for April is Brigitte Lefort!
Brigitte joined us as a Concierge Volunteer in 2017 but we cannot imagine what we did without her before that! She volunteers weekly at Hotel Dieu Grace Healthcare’s Tayfour Campus, helping palliative patients in the T2B Palliative Care Unit – Stephanie and Barry Zekelman Wing. Despite having a career of her own and family to raise she still finds the time to dedicate to volunteering. Her kindness and compassion are phenomenal, and she truly strives to know each patient as a person not just as a patient. She is always able to figure out how to make each and every patient comfortable. Each interaction she has is unique and personal because she takes the time to get to know each person individually. She is truly amazing and even helps us train new recruits. What better person is there for them to learn from! When asked why she chooses to volunteer, she said, “In early 2017, during a visit at the Tayfour campus for my best friend’s ailing father I noticed how much the T2B team was providing the family with refreshments and a friendly chat during a very difficult time. The T2B team is a great organization offering comfort and concierge items to patients and their families. I decided this was something I could pay forward."
What a generous and kind woman!!
Brigitte, we are blessed that you choose T2B as a cause worthy of volunteering your time for! Thank you for all you do for those in our community!
