Hospice Simcoe Volunteers are an integral part of our team and a fully integrated component of the organization’s human resources. Hospice Simcoe was founded by volunteers, and we continue to rely on them for support in quality patient care, bereavement support, administration and governance. Hospice Simcoe has chosen to adopt the Canadian Code for Volunteer Involvement as a statement that defines our values and beliefs around volunteerism. Hospice Simcoe is a member of Volunteer Canada and PAVRO (Professional Administrators of Volunteer Resources Ontario) and follows best practices in volunteer engagement.
Everyone has their own motivation for getting involved with Hospice Simcoe. For most the experience of volunteering is very rewarding. Please consider the ideas expressed below when considering volunteering with Hospice:
“It is good to know that I may make the difference in someone’s day today.”
“I am just one small contributor but I see the work that is done by many volunteers to make a difference.”
“I’ve learned how to really live through working with hospice clients, and that’s what has drawn me to stay with Hospice Simcoe.”
“A family told me, “This might be the last nice thing we get to do with our mom” after I gave a reflexology session, and I am blessed to have the opportunity to comfort families at their most vulnerable time.”
