Once a week
THIS PROJECT IS NOW CLOSED
This project involves visiting Llandough Hospital once a week, where volunteers get to spend time with people who have dementia and associated various mental health conditions. Volunteers will attend the Older Adult units.
Volunteers will provide befriending and companionship based sessions for patients with forms of dementia. Volunteers on some wards will also work in conjunction with nursing staff and the SVC Project Coordinator to arrange suitable evening activities.
It is ideal for anyone interested in the field of mental health, or someone who enjoys working closely with people. Anyone can apply but you need to be a good listener as well as proactive with starting conversations and activities. Commitment to the project is essential as the volunteers are valued by both the patients and the staff team.
