Hospice palliative care volunteers play an important role in supporting the programs offered by hospice societies across British Columbia. These dedicated volunteers can be found at hospitals, inpatient units, client’s homes and residential care facilities, and in grief support groups in our communities. Like paid staff, hospice volunteers are equally important in the continuum of care and have played a lead hand in the success of hospices since the beginning of time. The BCHPCA has put out a statement highlighting the needs of hospice societies during the pandemic to ensure that hospice volunteers can continue the work they are skilled and trained to do with inclusive protocols and accessibility.
