Phyllis Tuckwell Hospice Care


Gardeners

The Hospice Home Support Service for Phyllis Tuckwell Hospice offers a volunteer to visit a patient for up to 3 hours a week for companionship and to help with various things.

One thing that we get requests for is gardening and we are slightly limited on greenfingered volunteers  – sometimes it is light gardening and a simple case of assisting with maintenance and other times it is for a one-off clearing of the garden in order to allow the patient to carry on with the maintaining of it themselves.

 If you enjoy a bit of outdoor gardening please apply by clicking the application form tab & completing the short online form.
