Volunteers are part of the inter-disciplinary team and offer compassionate care on the Palliative Care Unit of LGH, at the North Shore Hospice and as part of the Every Day Counts Program.
Each Volunteer is asked to complete an 18 hour Basic Volunteer Training course and 18 hours of Mentoring, attend a weekly scheduled shift and a monthly education and support meeting. Volunteers may be involved in activities such as sitting at the bedside, visiting with patients and family, serving meals, kitchen clean up, co-facilitating groups, leading walking programs, reading to patients, card/board game play and much more.
If you are a good listener with the ability to commit to regular ongoing weekly participation, monthly education meetings and a minimum of 1 year committment of service, you may be a good fit for the Hospice Palliative Care volunteer team.
