  • Friendly Visiting: Volunteers will assist staff with providing a socially stimulating environment for patients.
  • Gift Shop Staff: Create and maintain an oasis of fun and imaginative merchandise, providing a brief escape from hospital issues along with a fun and imaginative shopping experience.

Become a Volunteer

As important members of the health care team, RGH volunteers extend and enhance the quality of care and service provided by our Alberta Health Services staff.

All volunteers are asked to make a minimum commitment to the hospital for one year, coming in once a week for a set shift. Shifts are typically three to four hours in length. The screening process includes an interview, police security check, communicable disease scan and reference checks. All volunteers are asked to sign a confidentiality statement to protect our patient’s privacy.
