Volunteer Program

Volunteer at DRDH

DRDH maintains an organized Volunteer Program that is designed to provide interested persons with the opportunity to provide community service and/or explore career options in health care. The Volunteer Program supports volunteers with the necessary tools to help enhance the well-being of our patients, residents and the DRDH community. Volunteers are supported with onboarding through a formal application process, and matching of assignments in keeping with their wishes, skills, and special training. All potential volunteers who are working on the organization’s property and who are in contact with patients or residents must go through an application, reference, health screening and orientation process prior to commencing responsibilities.  


The Volunteer program recognizes the contribution of volunteers to the quality of life of residents, patients and staff of DRDH. The Volunteer program provides encouragement, support and seeks to facilitate rewarding experiences to motivate volunteers in their service. Volunteers do not replace staff, but rather support staff in giving the best service to our residents, patients, families and the community.
