Meet your Peoria business: Thelma Health Services


Meet Stacy Nykorchuk, volunteer & bereavement coordinator at Thelma Health Services.

Town/Neighborhood: We cover many parts of Arizona, including Sun City, Peoria and the greater Valley, as well as Tucson and Globe. We also serve northern Arizona under the name Maggie’s Hospice.

What I do: I find and train volunteers to support our hospice patients. There are a lot of different ways to help! Volunteers can read books and play games with patients, do light house or yard work, help document the life stories of patients, sit vigil with those in their final hours, and more. Some volunteers bring their special talents such as playing the guitar or arranging flowers.

What I like most about working for a hospice: Thelma is very good at “meeting people where they are at” – patients and volunteers alike. We strive to promote comfort, education, and informed decision making.

What am I promoting: We are always looking for more volunteers in the communities we serve. Could that be you? Even if you are not 100% sure, I’m happy to talk to you to explore it further.

What I’m excited about and why: Giving your time to a hospice organization is a heart-felt gift to your community. Every time I speak with a prospective volunteer, I’m excited to meet someone who is considering giving back in this way. Hospice volunteers are truly special people.

What else I want you to know: Due to the sensitive nature of our work, we do collect a background check, TB test, and provide a significant amount of training. Volunteers need to be 18 or older. Volunteers come from all different backgrounds, from students to retirees, and everything in between.

What you should do if you are interested: Please email me at snykorchuk@themaAZ.com, that way I can send you some information and we can schedule a call to further assess how you can help our patients.
