Time to Make a Difference
St. Joseph’s has a thriving volunteer program of energetic, committed, motivated community members who contribute their time and energy to our patients and residents.
Volunteers are important, valued members of our hospital community, complementing the professional health care provided by staff. They add a personal touch and extra measure of compassion and support.
We have opportunities for both adults and youth from Grade 8 to 12. Click here for information about our youth program.
For adults, we have volunteering opportunities in both acute care and residential care. On the acute side, our volunteers provide patient reception and support in many areas, and help with a wide variety of tasks. In residential care, there are regular weekly activities, programs, outings, visiting and support to the elderly and frail residents of The Views. In addition, you may join St. Joseph’s Hospital Auxiliary, an independent volunteer organization that supports the hospital in many ways. Click here for more information about the Auxiliary.
Most of our volunteer opportunities are on weekdays, during the day. If you are restricted to volunteering in the evening or on weekends, your choices will be more limited.
Becoming a Volunteer
First, be realistic about your commitment and available time. Our volunteers are an important part of our services and we need to know that you can commit to being here when you said you would be.
Once you are ready, the process is easy.
