Our Brave Heart Stories
Brave Heart volunteers Michaela and Connor Dunlap provide companionship for Lupe Alvarez at the Pioneer Home. Being that there’s no family in town, among other things, they facilitate weekly treasured phone calls with Lupe and her daughter, Sonja.
When asked about their time with her, Lupe comments, “Isn’t that great, it’s just like having family, that’s wonderful. They are wonderful people. They are interesting, not only fun, they are young.”
Brave Heart Volunteer Phyllis Hackett visits with Nancy Rickets. When asked about her experience, Nancy says:
“I found out what Brave Heart does, and what is most helpful for me is the companionship. The volunteer I have now is Phyllis Hackett, she is a great, great gal. She is willing to walk fast, hard or easy, and now it has to be easy for me. I have walked in Sitka for almost 45 years, I walked everywhere and I loved it. When it gets so you can’t walk so well anymore, it is really important to have someone with you. I tell her what I can handle and what I find enjoyable. It’s really important to get out if you need mental stimulation!”
