COVID-19 Update
During this unprecedented time, given the current visitor restrictions in place at acute and long term care sites palliative care volunteers may not be able to have in-person visitations. Please connect with each Community Palliative Care Volunteer Coordinator to seek alternative options during this time.

It takes a village...

Southern Health-Santé Sud is grateful to the many community-based volunteer organizations that partner with us to provide volunteers for companionship and practical help in the palliative journey of those in our care. Volunteers provide emotional and practical support to the person who is dying and family as well as to friends and caregivers.

Volunteers receive special training in palliative and end of life care.

Patients and caregivers who are interested in learning more about volunteer services can either speak with a palliative care team member or contact a community group below.

Spending moments with another in earnest presence is one of the simple ways we can show unconditional love. It is the memories created from these impressions that survive after all else passes. (Molly Friedenfeld)
