Volunteer Orientation

Hospice Peterborough is offering an introductory afternoon orientation session in September to provide the community with an opportunity to learn more about volunteering with Hospice Peterborough. Interested individuals can attend either Thursday, September 7th or Tuesday, September 12th. Enrollment is limited – please call to register.

 
An interview process will be held following the orientation sessions and successful candidates will be invited to join the Hospice volunteer training. The fall training will begin in October and run for 10 weeks (three hours weekly in the afternoon).
 
The 30-hour training series is designed for people interested in providing support for individuals and families living with, or affected by life-threatening illness. The course explores issues related to death and dying, supporting people who are grieving and care for the caregiver. This course will introduce you to the concepts of hospice palliative care and prepare you for supporting individuals following the guidelines of Hospice’s Philosophy of Care.
 
For more information or to register for one of the orientation sessions please contact Paula Greenwood, Manager of Volunteer Services by phone (705) 742-4042 or email .
