The staff at The Manor at Seneca Hill recently recognized longtime volunteer Gladys Little with a special party to thank her for her dedicated service. Little, who is a resident of the nearby Springside at Seneca Hill, has volunteered at the Oswego Health skilled nursing facility for the past 15 years.
Little said she enjoyed her years of volunteering at The Manor and encouraged others to consider donating their time. “It was rewarding,” she said. “I especially like volunteering in the gift shop, which gave me the opportunity to talk to a lot of people, including the residents and rehab patients, as well as their family members and other visitors.”
Oswego Health Vice President and Chief Operating Officer of The Manor Jason Santiago said that he appreciated Little’s volunteer work. “Our residents and patients benefit greatly from our volunteers,” he said. “Whether it’s assisting at one of our activities or finding a way to spend some time with a resident, it’s just so wonderful to see the special care our volunteers provide.”
