Support for people dying in hospital
We also offer support at the bedside for anyone in hospital who has progressed onto an end of life care plan and are identified by hospital staff that they feel may benefit from our support. A volunteer will be able to sit with a loved one providing a reassuring presence to enable family or friends to take a break from the bedside. A volunteer will also be able to sit alongside patients who have no family or friends locally and who may otherwise die alone. The volunteer can provide emotional support to either patient or family where needed.
