Volunteer with Hospice

Volunteer with Hospice

For over 35 years, Nova Scotia Health and the Hospice Palliative Care Society of Cape Breton County (HPCS) have worked together to provide a quality Palliative Care program for the Cape Breton community.

Through donor support, the Society helps to provide resources to train palliative care volunteers. Volunteers may work with patients who are currently in hospital, at home, in long-term care facilities, or in Hospice. Trained volunteers provide companionship and offer short respites for families or caregivers.

There are many ways to share your time, talents, and services with Palliative Care patients and their families. The Volunteer Handbook below gives a brief overview of our programs, along with the time commitment and training needed.

The gift of your time improves the quality of life of Palliative Care patients and their families.
