Volunteers can also provide customer service and support to patients and staff on our busy nursing care units. While volunteers cannot provide care to patients, they can extend compassion and assistance to ensure staff, patients and family members feel supported.
All volunteers in this role will need to complete transport training to be able to move patients around the facility and connect them with services or to take them to the door where their rides await to bring them home. Additional guidance will be provided on the units when you begin. Placement in a specific department will be determined by a number of factors, including your availability.
If you would like to become a volunteer for one of our ambassador or unit assistant roles, please complete a Volunteer Application. Your application will be reviewed by our program managers. If your application reflects the needs of one of our open positions, you will be invited to a group interview.
Positions with infants
Please be aware that all of our volunteer positions with infants are currently full. If any any do open up, we will review submitted applications for these positions. This will likely be the case for some time since the program is designed for minimal turnover.
In addition to the overall volunteer requirements, some additional requirements are:
- A minimum commitment of one year (most stay on after this).
- CPR training which must remain current.
