Volunteers play many important roles across the province and give back to their communities. The COVID-19 pandemic presents an extremely serious public health threat to Albertans. It is important that all Albertans who are not at high risk of severe outcomes, and are able to volunteer, consider how they might contribute.
Alberta Health Services has over 14,000 amazing volunteers who share a commitment to improving the quality of the patient and family experience. Volunteers are an integral part of the healthcare team, supporting and enhancing the work of our healthcare professionals.
Our volunteers are engaged in meaningful activities and roles such as patient visitation, patient and family advisors, way finders, spiritual care, auxiliary members, pet visitation and much more. They come from diverse backgrounds but have one thing in common - a strong desire to make a positive impact on the lives and healthcare experiences of our patients, residents, clients and their families.
Volunteering is an excellent way to explore new careers, learn useful skills, give back to your community and make new friends.
