Support patients at their home

Often the most important thing you can do is just ‘be there’ for patients to reassure them they are not alone; to hold their hand; offer a smile or to listen – but there are also some specific tasks which can make a real difference:

  • Provide companionship, active listening, bedside sitting, reading aloud, letter writing
  • Record life stories
  • Do light gardening chores
  • Provide massage or aromatherapy treatments (if you are a trained practitioner)
