We are looking for some special volunteers who can spare a few hours each week to join our Home from Hospital team. We are especially keen to hear from anyone who doesn’t mind travelling to Lancing Adur and Southwick. (Travel and other expenses will be reimbursed)
Home from Hospital is a completely free service to any older person who lives alone and is due to be discharged from hospital. As a volunteer you will be providing social and practical support by visiting people in their own homes and possibly assisting with things like collecting prescriptions and basic shopping, preparing a light snack, helping people to engage with activities in their local area or maybe just chatting over a cup of tea.
We provide our volunteers with full training and ongoing support to enable them to make a real difference to local older people in their community. If you think you may be able to help, we would really love to hear from you. Please contact Claire on 01903 600602.
