Our hospice or palliative care volunteer visitors are specially trained, caring volunteers who visit with clients and their families to support them through a life-limiting or end-of-life journey.
Volunteer visitors offer compassion, a listening ear and emotional support to help improve the quality of life for those living with a serious life–limiting condition and for their families. They provide companionship and share activities or interests. They often become part of the respite support for caregivers needing a break from their roles.
Hospice or palliative volunteer visitors can visit clients in the community, in hospital or long-term care setting. The service is free of charge. Referrals can come from anyone at any stage in the illness journey.
