Client Volunteers are required to complete our Hospice Basic Training Program. This 10-week, 30-hours long training program is designed to provide the basic skills and knowledge you need to give compassionate and caring support to dying and/or bereaved people and their families. Training occurs twice a year.
Hospice Residence Visiting Team:
A team of hospice volunteers who listen, offer emotional support and companionship to the dying and their families at the Langley Hospice Residence.
Volunteers offer and provide companionship and emotional support to a dying person and his or her family in their homes, residential care and hospitals. Volunteers may also provide other supports such as vigils and respite care.
Adult Bereavement Support:
Volunteers will have the opportunity to offer and provide emotional support, as a group facilitator or in a one-on-one setting, to individuals who have experienced the death of a loved one.
