St. Richard’s Hospice are looking for people to make a difference to the lives of others every day.
The Hospice provides free Living Well courses on Fridays to people with a life-limiting illness to help them learn new skills, strategies and techniques through education, exercise, therapies, creativity, relaxation and group support.
We are currently recruiting volunteers to work alongside the Living Well team to meet and greet attendees, encourage them to participate in the varied activities and Living Well courses on offer and to encourage them to maintain their independence.
The Living Well courses are open to people living with a life-limiting condition such as cancer, heart failure, COPD, chronic kidney disease, Parkinson’s disease and motor neurone disease who are registered with a South Worcestershire GP. With many courses, participants will be encouraged to practice techniques to learn how to manage symptoms at home; to help gain the maximum benefit from the course and develop confidence to continue practising once the course has come to an end.
This role is enjoyable and rewarding but can sometimes be challenging.
Good communication skills including listening skills and the ability to be sensitive to the varied needs of others are essential for this role.
