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 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. **Due to COVID-19, this program is currently on hold**
  • On our palliative care floor in Hospice House – volunteers sit with patients, share musical talents, read, support nursing staff and interact with families. **Due to COVID-19, this program is currently on hold**
  • In our kitchen – the kitchen is a beehive of activity and our world class cooks can always use some extra support.

We are currently looking for volunteers in the following areas:

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.

If you are interested in becoming a volunteer, you will need to submit a resume and go through our application process. This process includes a criminal record check/vulnerability sector check; a completed application form with references; a face-to-face interview; orientation and training.
