Hope and Healing Through Connection

DHH is a dynamic non-profit organization dedicated to enhancing quality of life through the provision of non-medical support for those affected by or caring for an individual with a life-threatening illness, as well as bereavement support.

Volunteer Training

Client Service Volunteers are required to complete Core Concepts in Palliative Care offered by PalCare Network of York Region. This 30-hour training program prepares volunteers on relevant topics and ensures that volunteers are prepared to offer exceptional care to our clients. DHH staff will register prospective Doane House Hospice volunteers upon completion of application, interview and reference check. All sessions must be completed in order to receive your certificate. The cost for the training is $35.

Core Concepts Level One Training Topics

PalCare Network offers the training three times a year (spring, fall & winter).
For upcoming training dates, visit PalCare’s website:

Event & Awareness Volunteers and Administrative Volunteers  will receive training specific to their positions, however it is strongly recommended that all volunteers participate in PalCare Network’s Core Concepts in Palliative Care training  to better understand some of the challenges our client population come face to face with.
