Our volunteers are specifically trained in the following areas:
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.
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.
Here are some ways in which you can share your gratitude:
Share your story and help others see how Campbell River Hospice may be able to help them in their time of need.
Campbell River Hospice Society was here for your loved one. Your financial support will enable us to continue to deliver our services and expand our programs to be of help to other clients and their families.
