It has often been said, “Those who can, do. Those who can do MORE, volunteer.”
Crossroads Hospice volunteer Bernie Kenney is always doing more.
Bernie has been a part of our Crossroads team in Cincinnati for three years, serving patients in the Georgetown, OH area where he lives. As our primary volunteer in the area, Bernie has worked with up to 11 patients at any one time, doing everything from home visits to creating life journals that collect patients’ memories and photos.
“Bernie is a quiet man with a funny sense of humor,” says volunteer coordinator Jenn Ruter. “Somehow, his quiet demeanor brings peace to patients and their families.”
Bernie has embraced the Crossroads mission and assists in volunteer recruitment and promoting Crossroads throughout his communities. He recently helped to host a training in his area so new volunteers wouldn’t have to travel far.
Bernie lives his life through service. He is an ordained deacon in the Catholic Church and is involved in several ministries through his church and community. He also serves as the chaplain for the Georgetown Fire Department.
