Hospice volunteer

Our Hospice Volunteers are an invaluable support to the nursing and medical staff at Florence Nightingale Hospice in Aylesbury. Our volunteers are one of the key factors that make Hospice care so special, and different from being in a hospital.

They provide comfort and a warm welcome to our patients and their families by offering refreshments, companionship and a friendly face when people visit the Hospice.


What will I be doing?

You will be working alongside the Hospice team to support the patients, visitors and staff of Florence Nightingale Hospice In Patient Unit.

You may be involved in the following activities:

  • Collecting food trays after meal times/ afternoon tea, clear, load into the dishwasher and clean ready for the next use
  • Change and refill patient water jugs
  • Offer and delivery of tea and coffee to patients and visitors
  • Ensure relatives’ kitchen, the Day Room, communal areas and the staff kitchen are all kept clean, tidy and ready for use
  • Prepare, offer and clear away the Afternoon Tea service for patients and visitors
  • Where appropriate, chat, read newspapers/magazines, play cards, help with craft activities, help to write letters, etc. with the patients

All volunteers are given support and training as necessary to ensure you are happy and confident in your role
