After hospice workers provided the comfort and care she needed in her husband’s final hours, Micki Souter discovered the perfect outlet for channeling her inherent love and compassion. As a devoted volunteer at Silverado Hospice in Anaheim, Souter’s genuinely warm heart has touched the lives of everyone she encounters—patients, families and coworkers alike.
Souter is being honored as the February 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.
A retired trauma nurse, Souter has gone above and beyond in her work at Silverado, where she has volunteered for three years. Although she assists patients wherever she’s needed, Souter focuses her attention on one patient at a time, allowing her to develop relationships with patients and their families on a deeply personal level. She prefers working with Silverado patients receiving at-home care, because she believes the familiar environment is more relaxing for everyone involved.
Souter will be honored at Fairhaven’s Oliver Halsell Care Awards banquet in November. The banquet honors a year’s worth of achievements among the local caregiving community.
