Visiting Volunteer and/or Residential Support Volunteer
Hospice is all about "neighbours supporting neighbours." Our Volunteers serve in many roles within the organization e.g. Events, Fundraising, Household Support e.g. Landscaping, grass cutting, gardening, painting, shoveling snow; Community or Residential Volunteers, Office Volunteers, Community Awareness.
Palliative Care Volunteers represent a warm and caring community offering a friendly visitor, practical support and even a listening ear to an individual living with the challenges of a life-limiting illness. They offer care to the individual and his/her support network (including family and friends) in the home. Volunteers in this role complete a 30 hour online training program which results in a certificate of completion and includes:
- a better understanding of quality of life, advance care planning
- death, dying, grief and loss issues,
- the art of listening
- the hospice philosophy
- an understanding of medical management for caring for a patient
- the psychological and social issues families deal with in the care of their dying loved one
