Thank you very much for your interest in volunteering at Bristol Hospice. Volunteers are such an important part of our hospice team and make a significant impact on the care we provide to patients and their families.
A patient volunteer provides companionship to a patient and their family. This may include reading to the patient, singing, listening to their stories, praying with them,taking them for a walk, or just holding their hand while they sleep. Occasionally they may provide respite care for the caregiver or make a cup of soup or tea. They may be asked to run simple errands or do light housekeeping. Their most important role, however, is to be a comforting and supportive presence. After each visit, the volunteer completes a simple clinical note about the visit.
An office volunteer might file, produce computer documents, stuff envelopes, or assist with data entry. One may help make phone calls to the bereaved families 3 – 12 months after experiencing their loss.
We ask for a minimum of eight (8) hours a month and a one-year committment of our volunteers so that the patients experience continuity and there is time for a friendship to develop.
