Hospice Support Volunteers: Immensely Rewarding for All Involved

Hospice Miramichi Inc. invites you to come volunteer with us.  Volunteering is fun, interesting, and every day you get to work with some of the nicest people. All volunteers are screened, trained, and sign a Confidentiality Agreement. 

We welcome volunteers at:

  1. Our hospice at 51 Lobban Ave 4th floor. Become a Hospice Volunteer Visitor, a “friendly visitor” service where you provide non-medical support and services to patients and their families, such as sit, read, listen or other activities.
  • The Hospice Shoppe at 16 University Ave.  The Shoppe is our upscale re-sale boutique offering gently worn clothing, housewares and décor in great condition and at a great price.  It is one way we support ourselves. Volunteers greet customers, process sales, price and display donated items. Times are available Monday to Saturday for a three-hour shift between 10:00-1:00 and 1:00-4:00.  Your donation of items is also very much appreciated.
  • At our events. Events are held throughout the year and time and activity commitment varies.  All help is appreciated.

We’d love to hear from you!  Call (506) 773-7607 or email

Volunteer Support in a Time of Need is Invaluable

A bit about Hospice Miramichi Inc.:

Hospice Miramichi Inc is a registered not for profit charity, CRA 80518 2805 RP0001, established in 2011 to provide practical and emotional support, at no charge, to patients and their families.  In January 2024, we opened our 24-hour, 6 bed Residential Hospice at 51 Lobban Ave, 4th floor, in the Mount St Joseph building.  In collaboration with Extra Mural, our hospice provides professional, compassionate, and family-centered care at the end of life when home care is no longer the best option and hospital care is not required.  We also offer Grief Support Groups. All services are provided at no charge, except for medical co-pays.
