Hospital Aftercare Volunteer

To visit an older client at home once they have been discharged from hospital, carrying out light practical tasks such as local shopping, changing bed linen, vacuuming lounge or providing emotional support. No personal care or manual handling is involved. Visits [for 1.5 hours] only last for 6 weeks until the client regains independence.


No formal skills but empathy towards older people and the time to sit and listen and ability to converse.
