Volunteering

The Heart of Hastings Hospice volunteers help in the Madoc, Marmora, Stirling and Tweed areas.

  • Hospice offers our volunteers an opportunity to support their community
     

  • Volunteering is more than giving a few hours; it is making a difference in someone's life
     

  • Volunteers receive 30 hours of training developed by the Hospice Palliative Care Ontario

 

Give Back to the Community

The people we help could be your family, friends, neighbours, members of your church, former classmates and others you see and interact with often. 

 

Help Those In Need

The clients who are referred to us really need your help. In some cases they have no one else to turn to. We cannot let them "slip through the cracks".

 

Learn New Skills

We offer free Palliative Care training and paid mileage. 

Gain/Continue Palliative Care Experience

Do you have an interest in a career in healthcare? Gain valuable experience. Maybe you are an active or retired healthcare professional, we could use your expertise!
