Two hours of your time can make all the difference to Hospiscare’s East Devon patients

If you can offer a few hours of your time to drive Hospiscare patients to appointments, or offer other help, the charity wants to hear from you.

This year Hospiscare has cared for more than 220 patients in the East Devon area, which has been made possible with the support of local volunteers.

The charity said being available to regularly help for two or three hours would benefit patients who need driving to appointments, or practical and emotional support.

A Hopsiscare spokeswoman said: “At Hospiscare, we know that volunteering positively impacts on people’s lives. Not only our patients’ lives, but the physical and mental wellbeing of our volunteers.

“Giving two to three hours each week or each fortnight helps in so many ways, from driving patients to appointments to offering practical and emotional support as a bereavement volunteer.

“Hospiscare needs your help. We have a range of volunteering roles in East Devon.

“Become a volunteer and improve your own wellbeing whilst supporting local people.”

Hospiscare provides free care for terminally ill adults and their families in Exeter, Mid and East Devon.

The charity has three hospices in Devon; Searle House in Exeter, Kings House, Honiton, and Pine Lodge, Tiverton.

Hospiscare offers care in the community with Hospiscare@Home in Exmouth and Budleigh Salterton, Seaton and Axminster.
