*New* Hospice and Palliative Care Volunteers - virtual and in-person

179 Skyview Circle NE, Calgary, AB, T3N 0Y7 [map]
2-4 hours / weekly
10 months
Volunteers will be the first to support residents at AgeCare Skypointe, Calgary's new 15-bed Hospice .  Separate Palliative Care volunteers are also projected to be at many long term care locations across the city.    

A variety of positions will be available virtually and in person.

Virtual Volunteers can contribute from home as knitters, sewers, crafters, and scrapbooking and will be connected via online meetings to enjoy connections with other volunteers if they so wish.

In-person volunteers will support tea time, companioning, and supportive roles such as reception/ wayfinding.  The in-person role will include ongoing training and professional development supported by the Hospice Volunteer Coordinator.  Experience with long term care or end of life is preferred for roles supporting hospice residents and families.   If an applicant has experienced the loss of a loved one in the past year we encourage involvement with an AgeCare Recreation Program prior to transitioning to the Hospice Volunteer Program to afford a period of remembrance and transition. Flexible shifts during weekdays, evenings, and weekends will be available. Training requirements include a 2-day training session during a few weekends (likely by Zoom) in mid-October unless an applicant has successfully completed this training in the past 2 years.
