During these uncertain times, how can we help?
See below to access our COVID-19 Resource Hub, and to explore our growing directory of both COVID-19-specific and virtual volunteering opportunities.
Our mission is to care, comfort and heal. Hospice volunteers provide companionship and support to people with life-limiting illnesses and their families. They visit patients in private homes and in long-term care facilities and they offer the gift of presence, by listening, acknowledging and affirming the journey ahead.
We seek emotionally mature individuals who demonstrate the personal qualities of empathy, flexibility and the desire to make a difference in another person's life.
Volunteers offer support to the patient and their family, often providing much needed respite for caregivers. They also provide practical assistance such as running errands, preparing a snack or performing light housekeeping.
