Meaningful Activity Volunteer

  • VO91289


Description

We are looking for friendly individuals who like company and to chat, who are willing to spend some time with patients in a hospital setting.
Many patients can spend up to a month in hospital away from home comforts, family and friends and this can be very lonely. Not only does this have an impact on mental health but also physical health, prolonging hospital stay further.
By giving your time to chat, reminisce, play a game of dominos or do a puzzle with patients, you will be supporting our hard working NHS staff to ensure quality, person centred care is given to our patients every time.
Please contact our team to find out more on this extremely fulfilling and vital role.
