Home from Hospital Support Volunteers play a vital role in assisting older people feel better and settled at home after being in hospital.

What does a Home from Hospital Support Volunteer do?

Home from Hospital is a free service offered to older people who have no one else they can rely on when they are discharged from hospital. Our Home from Hospital Support Volunteers help them with practical tasks, like light cleaning or shopping, and offer much valued emotional support and motivation at a time when the older person needs it the most.

Is it for me? 

Volunteers with this service are sympathetic towards the challenges older people face, especially matters relating to their wellbeing. Using that understanding greatly helps to support and empower the older person to remain independent. He/ She must be a good listener with a warm and friendly manner with the ability to put people at ease.
