Nanaimo Community Hospice looking for volunteers

Hospice needs men or women to help deliver free client care programs

Nanaimo’s hospice society needs various volunteers to help deliver some of its programs in the community.

According to a Volunteer Nanaimo press release, Nanaimo Community Hospice Society is always looking for caring and compassionate men and women to join the volunteer group.

The society is looking for volunteers to help with free client care programs. Those volunteers will receive 40 hours of training and will then enter into a mentorship with experienced volunteers. After that, there will be opportunities for volunteers to support individuals and families in homes or the hospital palliative care unit, or facilitate support groups. Adult group facilitation volunteers will help deliver bereavement programs after additional education and mentorship.
