*New* Hospice - Knitting Volunteers

1-2 hours / monthly
As long as you wish
Love to Knit?   Looking for a stay at home way to contribute to your community and connect with like minded colleagues? Have you given any thought to a Virtual Volunteer role given all the changes during the Pandemic?

We welcome you to join the first volunteer group to support residents at AgeCare Skypointe, Calgary's new 15-bed Hospice.  SkyPointe Hospice is an unique community that offers high quality, compassionate, person-centered care in a culturally rich and diverse community. Our vision is to provide a home-like environment that offers a peaceful and supportive atmosphere for end-of-life care. In hospice, we treat the person rather than the disease and focuses on your quality of life, surrounding you with a team of professionals who help manage your pain and symptoms as well as your emotional and spiritual wellbeing.  For a photo tour please visit https://www.agecare.ca/community/agecare-skypointe/hospice-care/#tour  

No volunteer application is needed and any age can participate in this virtual volunteer experience.  The creation of a ZOOM group is hoped for the future for those who wish to participate.  To sign up as a volunteer to receive patterns and direction on items needed for SkyPointe Hospice, please contact Elizabeth George, Volunteer Coordinator, egeorge@agecare.ca  or call (587) 619-6349.  Please note, the Hospice is brand new and due to the pandemic has not yet received donations of materials.
