Volunteering

Volunteers are the heart of hospice.

Volunteering with Hospice Dufferin is a rewarding experience that will make a difference in you and our community.

Palliative support volunteers provide emotional and practical support to clients in-home, hospital and long-term care facilities. Screening and training are mandatory.

Bereavement support volunteers provide contact with clients in group and individual settings.

Screening and training are mandatory.

 

Volunteers also assist with administration, governance, and fundraising. High school students requiring community service hours are required for special events. If you have a specific skill that you would like to share including IT, fundraising, public relations, or are a complementary therapist, we welcome your call. For more information on becoming a volunteer, please contact Brianna Brown at 519∙942∙3313 ext 2.

"The staff and volunteers that Hospice provided to my husband before his death and to me after will never be forgotten. He looked forward to their visits. We are indebted to everyone that helps this organization provide this important service in our community."
