Palliative Care Volunteers

Volunteers for Palliative Care are managed by the Palliative Care program. The purpose of Palliative Care Volunteer Services is to complement the existing professional services and resources to provide emotional, psychosocial and spiritual support for palliative care clients and their families. Volunteers are an integral part of the palliative care team. Trained volunteers provide compassionate and confidential care for the client and their family in the home, hospital or other healthcare facility.

Palliative care volunteers come from all walks of life, age, ethnicity, faith and professional backgrounds. Volunteers are good listeners, caring, empathetic, non-judgemental and trustworthy.

Palliative care volunteers are available in many communities in the Prairie Mountain Health Region.
