Patient Befrienders

Patient Befrienders interact with patients who may feel lonely, isolated or bored on the wards. They spend time talking with patients, helping them to connect virtually with their loved ones or support with activities at the bedside or in the day room. They can make a difference to a patient’s day with a friendly visit and chat or help pass the time with some fun activities.
