Cancer Support Volunteer Training Information
At CanCare, we provide an exceptional training program for individuals interested in becoming stomach cancer volunteers. Our comprehensive training is led by therapists and training specialists and equips volunteers with the knowledge and skills to serve others in the community.
During the training, volunteers will learn about CanCare's mission and how we support cancer patients and their caregivers. They will gain valuable insights into the unique challenges faced by caregivers and the impact of these challenges on both the caregiver and the cancer patient's emotional well-being.
One of the key components of our training is focused on sharpening the volunteers' active listening skills. We understand the importance of truly hearing and understanding the needs and concerns of stomach cancer patients, and our training emphasizes effective listening techniques.
Another valuable aspect of our training is the opportunity for volunteers to work through their own personal cancer journey. This allows volunteers to understand the challenges faced by individuals with stomach cancer and enables them to provide empathetic and compassionate support.

Healthcare Volunteer Process
Our healthcare volunteers at CanCare are crucial in supporting patients and their families. We have implemented a comprehensive training program to ensure our volunteers are well-prepared and equipped to offer meaningful assistance.
First, all CanCare healthcare volunteers undergo our training program, which covers various aspects of providing emotional support to patients. This training helps sharpen their active listening skills and teaches them how to effectively address the needs and concerns of stomach cancer patients.
In addition to our training program, our volunteers also benefit from orientation and any additional training provided by the hospital or location where they choose to volunteer. This ensures they are familiar with the specific policies, procedures, and resources available at the healthcare facility.
New volunteers can shadow an experienced hospital volunteer to further support our volunteers until they feel comfortable and confident in supporting patients and caregivers on their own. This mentorship provides valuable hands-on experience and guidance to ensure our volunteers can make a positive impact.
Our healthcare volunteers receive ongoing support from CanCare throughout their volunteering journey, ensuring they have the resources and guidance they need to maintain a consistent and rewarding schedule.
If you are interested in becoming a healthcare volunteer and making a difference in the lives of stomach cancer patients, we encourage you to apply to join our team in Houston, TX, or Atlanta, GA. Together, we can provide the support and care needed to navigate the challenges of stomach cancer.
