Trained Hospice Volunteers are available to visit patients and their family members at either location, Monday to Friday.
Trained Hospice volunteers are available to visit patients and their family members, wherever home may be. That means hospice services are provided in private homes and residential care settings.
When the death of a loved one is imminent, family members may find it helpful to rely upon a hospice volunteer to sit at the bedside if they cannot.
Volunteers trained in companioning through grief and loss can provide a listening ear, calming presence and compassion for those who have lost a loved one.
Our organization is always looking for experienced assistance with desktop publishing, mail-outs, on-going library maintenance, and telephone support.
Trained speakers will deliver workshops, one on one sessions or business lunch and learn sessions, covering subjects such as hospice palliative care and advance care planning.
We welcome and appreciate every effort to help fund the psychosocial, emotional and spiritual end-of-life care and support that we provide to clients and families in Campbell River and surrounding areas who are facing advancing illness, death and bereavement.
Each year, CRHS seeks community help to raise funds in order to maintain these specialized programs and services. Programs and services include one to one support, a palliative response team, companioning and counselling, bereavement and spiritual support, volunteer services, education and complementary therapies. Hosting an independent fundraising event is a great way to support Campbell River Hospice’s programs and services, and to educate people about the work that we do at the same time.
Events are often initiated by individuals or groups in honor of a family member, friend or co-worker who received care or support from Campbell River Hospice Society. Each event, regardless of size and reach, demonstrates the spirit of generosity and commitment to quality end-of-life care in our community. Some of the previous third party events that have been held include silent auctions, golf tournaments and gala event dinners.
The care that Campbell River Hospice provides to our clients touches the lives of many people: parents, spouses and partners, children, grandchildren plus other family members and friends. For them, it can be a great comfort to see their loved one receive compassionate care and many find that they want to give back to hospice in some way.
