Different people have their own different reasons to volunteer at IPM and be a part of this journey. Volunteers are an integral part of palliative care and whatever we have achieved would not have been possible without them. There are different areas in which you can volunteer and each of these areas have several tasks which you can take up depending upon the time that you are willing to keep aside for this cause. You could be a student, a homemaker or from any profession, you can be a volunteer at IPM if you have a compassionate heart.
Areas of possible volunteer involvement are mentioned below. The voluntary services are broadly categorised into two areas:
Each area has tasks that require long-term engagements and short-term engagements. Different tasks will be assigned to you based on the time you will be available, your area of interest and the needs of the organisation. You can also take up a one-time task if you only have limited time available. Each volunteer will have to register before they start volunteering and the registration process is different for long-term and short-term engagements. If you are interested in volunteering at areas such as patient care, you will have to go through a compulsory training program.
