Volunteers are a driving force for us. Whether they actively help those in need or are simply present with patients that need it the most, volunteering at Horizon has always proven to be one of life’s most rewarding experiences.

Volunteering enables our communities to be involved in enhancing the care experience for every person, every day.

In addition to adding a caring and personal touch to our patients’ experience with Horizon, our volunteers complement the role of our professional staff. They are an important and valued asset of our operations and they make all the difference in the world for our patients. 

Many Horizon volunteers say they receive far more than they give. Some examples of the benefits of volunteering include:

  • Helping and serving those in need;
  • Networking with other volunteers;
  • Obtaining references for employment, scholarships and bursaries;

  • Gaining valuable experience; and
  • Making new friends.

As a Horizon volunteer, you can:

  • Visit with patients;
  • Assist with patient recreation programs such as music, cards and bingo;
  • Participate in hospital projects and committees to collaborate with staff and provide input;

  • Greet and assist the public in outpatient clinics;
  • Provide service in our hair salons, gift and coffee shops;
  • And so much more.

Whether you want to help those in need, dip your feet into the medical world, witness the work of health professionals first-hand or all three at once, we want to hear from you!
