Finding Hospital Volunteers

With many hospitals currently being understaffed, medical professionals often have no choice but to rush from room to room caring for a large volume of sick individuals, sometimes leaving behind patients who are confused, lonely or depressed.

Hospital volunteers can help fill in those sometimes long stretches of time in a patient's day by listening to their fears and helping to meet their needs. Some patients are happy to borrow reading material and games from the hospitality cart that volunteers often push around. Others simply want someone to keep them company during their meals. It is also not uncommon for cancer patients undergoing chemotherapy to find it therapeutic to want to braid a volunteer's hair as they are losing their own.
