Do you enjoy meeting and connecting with people and learning their life story? Do you have a couple of hours to spare once a week or fortnight? There is a new volunteer program at Shoalhaven Hospital that may be of interest.

The Volunteers Assisting and Supporting Elderly patients (VASE) program has been created to support patients who are elderly, frail or have cognitive impairment. Our aim is to provide social and emotional support to patients to enhance their care and recovery. Training and ongoing support are provided. To find out more contact Elanne Thompson on 44646985.
