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

J.T. Clark Family Adult Day Centre

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.
