Becoming a Volunteer and Becoming a Board Director

Hospice PEI volunteers are required to attend our Volunteer Training Course before they are qualified to perform volunteer services. It consists of nine or ten two-hour long sessions and costs $30 per applicant and includes a membership to both Hospice PEI and the Canadian Hospice Palliative Care Association. This certificate course is recognized by all health care providers and health care institutions in PEI.  Applicants must complete the entire course (9-10 sessions) in order to obtain certification. There is no requirement to become a Hospice Volunteer after taking this course.

 

Those who wish to volunteer for Hospice PEI must participate in an individual interview with their local Hospice Coordinator prior to being assigned to a patient/family. Criminal record checks are required as part of this interview. Training sessions are typically held once a year and scheduling differs depending on each regional chapter.
