Just being there could give more comfort and support than you will ever really know…
End of life support can make a huge difference to the way in which people experience the last stages of their life, enabling them to overcome fears and anxieties with friendship, connection and warmth. Could you provide that meaningful and reassuring presence, particularly to someone who may be lonely or isolated?
For most people, home is where they want to be at the end of life. Despite the range of health and care services available, people who are dying can experience isolation, feel excluded from social circles and distanced from their communities. Loneliness and social isolation can have a detrimental impact on both health and quality of life.
End of life Companion Volunteers help reduce loneliness and social isolation for those approaching end of life. They are a mindful, compassionate presence at this sensitive time ‘walking alongside’ and accompanying you towards the end of life – practically, emotionally and spiritually, supporting you in the most peaceful and secure way, knowing there is someone by your side.
