Volunteer Services - Illawarra-Shoalhaven

Overview

Our Volunteer services provide specially trained volunteers who offer support for palliative and rehabilitation clients in hospitals and in patient's homes.

Volunteers make a valuable contribution to the 'total care' of patients and their carers.

Volunteers help by:

  • offering companionship
  • providing respite and support for carers
  • reading, playing games, writing letters
  • sharing their skills and interests
  • assisting at meal times and with activities
  • providing basic practical support - not patient care
  • and most importantly being a friendly ear!

Volunteers are bound by the same professional and ethical standards as staff, most importantly respecting and maintaining privacy and confidentiality.
