'This Is Me' Support Volunteer - Colchester & Ipswich

We are looking for volunteers to support and aid the nursing teams to provide person centred care to those patients who are living with dementia.

This is an exciting role where you really can make a difference to a patients hospital stay by giving them a voice when completing 'This Is Me' paperwork which will enable clinical staff to engage with patients about what interests them which opens the door to more engaging conversations.

In this role you would get to visit different wards and patients each shift, ensuring no shifts are ever the same. So if you are active, someone who likes talking to others and would like the opportunity to make a real difference to the care of patients who don’t always have a voice than this could be the perfect role for you.

Current shifts available Monday-Friday 10am-2pm. Please contact Volunteers@esneft.nhs.uk for more information. 

Applicants must be aged 18 and over. Please note this role is not available on an ad-hoc basis and you must be able to commit to the same shift each week.
