***Exciting new opportunity as a Side by Side volunteer in the Friarage Hospital, Northallerton***
As a volunteer you will provide invaluable, person centred opportunities for people with dementia during their stay in hospital. You could enable someone to take part in recreational activities on the ward or keep someone connected to the things they love– such as listening to music or simply enjoying a good conversation.
Your involvement ensures people with dementia feel less isolated during their time in hospital by focussing on individual’s strengths and preferences to remain active and more confident.
The role will provide volunteers with the opportunity to get experience on hospital wards, by engaging people living with dementia in social and recreational activities. Volunteers will receive fantastic training both from Alzheimer’s Society and the Therapeutic Care Team of South Tees NHS Trust.
Location: Friarage Hospital, Northallerton
