Volunteer

Hospice volunteers are wonderful people. We have a variety of opportunities, all of which, are critically important for our organization. Here is a snapshot of some of the areas we could use your support and time:

  • At the Hospice Boutique – volunteers play a big role in operating our boutique. It is a wonderful and fun environment to spend time each week.
  • In our J.T. Clark Family Adult Day Centre – working alongside our coordinator, volunteers work with participants, plan activities, organize outings, and spend time with a wonderful group of people.
  • In our Community Services program – volunteers spend time in the community with those still living at home. Activities and details vary but all are focused around supportive and caring relationships.
  • On our palliative care floor in Hospice House – volunteers sit with patients, share musical talents, read, support nursing staff and interact with families.
  • In our kitchen – the kitchen is a beehive of activity and our world class cooks can always use some extra support.

Do you have 3-4 hours per week to make an lasting impact in your community?

We are currently looking for volunteers to assist in the following areas:

Kitchen Helpers

  • Assist with food preparation
  • Serve dining room guests
  • Maintain the cleanliness of the kitchen/dining room area

Greeters

  • Provide assess to the building through a locked entry
  • Offer a warm greeting to all visitors
  • Direct visitors to specific areas of the building

Reception

  • Create a warm and welcoming environment for all visitors
  • Direct visitors to specific staff offices and/or other services

Hospice Boutique

J.T. Clark Family Adult Day Centre

  • Assist in the daily programming that is offered to our clients
  • Provide meaningful companionship
  • Help coordinate details and supplies with our guest service providers

 

Hospice Fredericton does not ask for any specific number of volunteer hours, however an average shift for each role is 3-4 hours and you may volunteer as many days per week, as you wish.

We have an application process which includes a criminal record check/vulnerability sector check; a completed application form with references; a face-to-face interview; orientation and training.
