    Living Well at Home Project Volunteer

    Could you visit patients at home, coaching and enabling them to achieve goals?

    Why we need your help

    Our Living Well at Home Project volunteers are part of our Patient and Family support roles

    Patients, their families and our community tell us that coping with the practicalities, feelings and questions which arise when thinking about dying and death is challenging. As a Living Well at Home project volunteer you will offer support alongside our staff to increase peoples self-confidence and ability to self-manage their difficulties or symptoms in their own home.

    What activities will you be involved in as part of this volunteer role?

    You will be providing rehabilitation at home. This may include;

    • Exercises that may make things easier at home for them (for example standing from a chair).
    • Supporting people to manage their breathlessness and help someone to put some techniques into practice when they are carrying out their day to day activities.
    • Helping someone to mobilise.

    You will not be involved in the following;

    • Toileting or personal care.
