Volunteers sought for Macclesfield hospital's dementia ward
11:20am Sunday 29th September 2013 in News
A CHARITY is calling on the people of Knutsford to volunteer for an on-ward befriending service at Macclesfield Hospital.
The Royal Voluntary Service, formerly known as WRVS, will be working with NHS Eastern Cheshire Clinical Commissioning Group to launch the service in October.
The new service will be part of the dedicated dementia friendly ward at the hospital and provide practical and social support to older people.
Volunteers are needed to make the service a success as they help provide companionship and reassurance, relieve boredom, and at meal times encourage patients to eat.
To find out more contact Jo on 07582 469205.
