Hospice Respite Visiting

The Hospice Volunteer Program recruits, screens and trains volunteers to provide supportive care to individuals and their families who are facing life-threatening or life-altering conditions, as well as to individuals who have lost a loved one. VON volunteers are compassionate people who have chosen to participate as a team member along with caregivers and healthcare providers. Volunteers are trained in the Fundamentals of Hospice Palliative Care and receive ongoing professional education, guidance and support. Volunteer involvement also provides relief and respite for caregivers.

This program is available in Middlesex and Elgin Counties.

Caregiver Support and Counselling

VON program coordinators offer emotional and spiritual support on a one-on-one basis as well as through bereavement support groups, and library resources.

This program is available in Middlesex County.
