How much do volunteers make a difference in Palliative care?
The impact of volunteerism affects everyone! Some volunteers have reported a strengthening of their own faith, help through their own grief, and self development.
Volunteers also allow for people to remain in their homes longer, raise awareness of what palliative and hospice care is, as well as helping hospices and hospice societies remain open.

The Airdrie & District Hospice Society is fully operated by volunteers, including the Board of Directors, Special Event Volunteers, and Palliative Companions.
Volunteers come from all walks of life with the defined purpose of providing comfort and quality of life to those with a life-limiting illness, and everyday support to their families. Their dedication is where the Airdrie and District Hospice Society draws its strength and vitality.
We currently have the following volunteer opportunities available:
Special Event Volunteers - Assist at special events throughout the year, including Hike for Hospice, and the Tree of Hope.
Please contact us to learn more about how you can get involved!
All we have to decide is what to do with the time that is given us.
We seek to enhance community capacity by promoting physical, emotional and spiritual well-being.
