We currently have a team of six volunteers working on our ward.

They are provided by Caritas Socialis and help us to care for the patients. Training for this role is mandatory.

Each of them comes once a week for a few hours to talk to the patients, take them for walks or shopping, help them with their meals - just to be there for them and their families.

All our volunteers wear a badge with their name on it and are authorised to provide this service.

Of course, all these services are free of charge and should only be seen as an offer.
