Clinical Services

Hospice at Home recognises and values the immense contribution volunteers make to the delivery of our services. We have a small team of volunteers working in Complementary Therapy, Family and Bereavement Support and the nursing team. We have recently developed a Befriending Service.

We are eager to extend our volunteer workforce within these areas but also within our other teams where volunteers are not currently working.

If you feel you have time to give we would very much like to hear from you. Please contact the Clinical Team Office on 01228 603208 for an informal discussion regarding volunteering opportunities.

Current opportunities 

Our Family Support Team are looking for people to join them in providing support to people who are experiencing difficulties with bereavement.

If you have excellent communications skills and some time to spare to volunteer they would really like to hear from you.

No specific qualifications or skills are required as training will be given.

If you are interested in joining the team please contact Doris, Counsellor or Jan, Clinical Lead on 01228 603208 for more information.

 

At this time of year when our thoughts may be with loved ones that have passed or have been unwell, you may feel that you want to give a gift to others in need or to repay a good deed to those who have helped you …

If this sounds familiar then volunteering and giving a gift of time to others may just be what you are looking for …

Complementary therapies are offered to patients, carers and those who are bereaved either at home or another agreed venue, by a small but dedicated team of qualified experienced therapists. Our team of dedicated volunteer therapists do not replace the functions of hospice at home paid staff but complement their work, contributing to improving the well-being and quality of life for patients, relatives and carers.
