Meet Kathy Oleski

Since starting as a volunteer at Hurley, Kathy has spent time working in the lobby shop and a lot of the COVID vaccine clinics, though most of her time is spent with the Hurley Elder Life Program (HELP). When elderly patients are admitted to Hurley, the HELP Team interviews them to determine their level of independence at home, learn about their families and identify hobbies and interests. HELP Team volunteers like Kathy then spend time with those patients with the goal of helping them avoid delirium during their stay. When Kathy first decided to volunteer, she says she “wanted to work in the NICU, holding babies, but now I wouldn’t give up my spot on the HELP Team.”
