Volunteering at Hôtel-Dieu Grace Healthcare
Every day, our volunteers enrich the lives of hundreds of patients and their families by giving generously of their time and contributing to the well-being of our healthcare community, the vitality of our services, and the quality of patients' experiences at Hôtel-Dieu Grace Healthcare.
Representing diverse cultures, age groups, abilities and life experiences, our volunteers complement the professional role of our staff by enhancing services to patients and their families beyond the scope of regular patient care. Some are looking ahead to future careers in healthcare; others are looking back over the rich life experiences that have equipped them for their role as volunteers. Whatever their backgrounds, all of our volunteers are working to support the personal dignity, safety, security and quality care offered in our hospital.
Thinking about volunteering? All you need is a willingness to help people, a little time to share, and a desire to challenge yourself. Your gift of time and energy would be invaluable to our patients and staff. Volunteers must be at least 15 years old by the start of their placement.
Note: Volunteers must be willing to commit to one shift per week for a minimum four-month commitment. Volunteering on a weekly basis is a big responsibility. Please make sure this is a good time in your life for such a commitment.
