Red Deer Hospice Society
About: The Red Deer Hospice Society recognizes death as a part of life’s journey. Our commitment is to provide compassionate care so people can die in peace, comfort and dignity with support for them and their loved ones.
Volunteer Opportunities: Our volunteer duties here at Hospice are rather unique as we are dealing with individuals at end of life and their families. Our volunteers are required to go through two eight-hour days of training and, of course, require a criminal check. We do have some volunteers who help with our fund raising events only.
