Patients receiving specialist palliative care and end-of-life care have the option of speaking to our specially-trained volunteers.

The volunteers offer their time and a listening ear to patients who have life-limiting illnesses, are in the last months of life or may have no or few visitors. They also give family and friends a chance to take a break during visiting, knowing one of the volunteers can keep their loved one company.

Volunteers received specialist training to prepare for their roles, which offer additional support to the high level of care patients already receive at Tŷ Olwen.

The volunteers work alongside staff to deliver one-to-one support to patients who may wish to share their stories, worries and concerns.

Available eight hours each day, they can assist with more practical tasks such as ensuring patients stay connected with friends and family by helping them make phone and video calls.
