Ward volunteers help create a pleasant environment for patients during their stay - and for their visitors too. You'd be providing some company, helping with meals and refreshments and doing other tasks that keep the inpatient unit running smoothly. Nursing staff will be on hand at all times to take over where personal or clinical care is needed.
