When Orange resident David Nakashima finally found the time to pursue his desire to volunteer with hospice patients, he discovered a surprisingly fulfilling new outreach. His presence at OC Hospice in Tustin has brought a great deal of comfort not only to the patients and their families but also to Nakashima himself.
Nakashima is being honored as the January recipient of Fairhaven’s Oliver Halsell Care Award. Fairhaven Memorial Park & Mortuary, with locations in Santa Ana and Mission Viejo, created the recognition program in 2012 to pay tribute each month to individuals who have demonstrated exceptional care in their profession, community and the world at large.
As a volunteer at OC Hospice, Nakashima visits patients during his free time. Occasionally he sits with them, talking and listening, reading aloud, assisting with needs, playing games, reading bible verses—anything to make their lives more enjoyable. Nakashima goes above and beyond what is expected from a volunteer, including engaging with patients who do not have an assigned volunteer and following up with support to family members after a loved one has passed. In addition, he accepted the role of project manager for the 2013 Adopt A Senior Holiday Angel program.
Nakashima also works full-time at The Walt Disney Company in Anaheim, where he is involved with the corporate VoluntEAR program.
