Pastoral Care Volunteers provide non-denominational support to patients who request it. Volunteers are referred from their congregation. They receive specific training through the Pastoral Care Services at CMH. Volunteers share their faith and support individuals and families in need. Read more about this service at CMH.

Medical Day Clinic

These Volunteers help support patients as they receive treatment. Our knowledgeable volunteers can help provide directions, sit with patients while they wait or receive treatment; they also provide comfort and refreshments. Medical Day Clinic volunteers can provide information about the Canadian Cancer Society and other services patients can access, both at the clinic and in the community.

The Canadian Cancer Society is a national, community-based organization of volunteers, whose mission is the eradication of cancer and the enhancement of the quality of life of people living with cancer. As members of the Cambridge Memorial Hospital Volunteer Association they strive to meet this mission.

For further information or to become a volunteer in the Medical Day Clinic Department, please call Jamie Hastings, Coordinator, Volunteer Services - Cambridge Memorial Hospital at(519) 621-2333 ext 2401 or

Hospice of Waterloo Region

Hospice of Waterloo Region is a charitable organization whose specially- trained volunteers provide support for people with terminal illness. Services can be provided at home, in our Region's hospitals, and at Lisaard House, a six-bedroom hospice in Cambridge. Hospice works closely in partnership with a caregiving team of family, friends and healthcare providers. There are currently a number of Volunteers providing support to the Oncology Care floor at Cambridge Memorial Hospital.

Our focus is on caring, not curing, on life, not death. Our programs and services are for children, teens, adults and their families who are experiencing the loss of a loved one or who are themselves facing a life-threatening illness.

Volunteers are carefully screened and participate in an intensive 30-hour training course. Volunteers enrich people’s lives by sharing their gifts of listening, caring, friendship, love, humour, practical support and respite care.
