Our volunteers assist the ward staff to help make the patients’ mealtimes as enjoyable as possible. Many older patients are at high risk of dehydration and malnutrition, and volunteers can make a huge impact on this important aspect of patient well-being. Some older patients are coping with dementia and memory problems so a willingness to train in dementia awareness is important, with further training available to those who develop an interest in helping our older patients. Ward volunteers are confident communicators, tactful listeners, keen observers, and emotionally resilient.
