HOW YOU CAN HELP

Our Society could not operate without the compassion and care of our truly dedicated and loving volunteers.

Campbell River Hospice welcomes our 2017 client services volunteer group! 

We are so fortunate that these wonderful people engaged in 36 hours of training with Volunteer Coordinator Roberta Bower and Facilitator Jane Clarke. Welcome Pam Adcock, Leone Bliss, Ashley Buys, Irwin Harder, Jessica Hammersmark, Geneva Janzen, Suzanna Longridge, Mary Lazarski, Kathy Morrison, HUgette Ruel, Jenny Sawatsky, Barbara Swanston, Marcus Willems, Tucker Dinnes, Jivana Tao! Thank you Jane and Roberta for making it inspiring and fun! 


Our volunteers are specifically trained in the following areas:

  • To listen confidentially and support without judging or advising.
  • To provide client companionship, support, respite and vigil service..
  • Provide assistance by effectively accessing the society and other community resources.

Volunteer Opportunities

Hospital &Yucalta Hospice Visiting Team

Trained Hospice Volunteers are available to visit patients and their family members at either location, Monday to Friday.

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.

Administration and Fundraising Support

Our organization is always looking for experienced assistance with desktop publishing, mail-outs, on-going library maintenance, and telephone support.

Education and Speakers Bureau

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.
