Our support volunteers
Among the members of the Association, certain individuals – the “support volunteers” – spend some of their free time with patients who have shown that they need someone to talk to when admitted to the CHPG. Before becoming support volunteers, they follow several training sessions provided by doctors and therapists.
Visits are made on a daily basis in pairs, according to a schedule established at the beginning of the month by the person in charge of the volunteers. Visits and events for the month in question are listed on this document: afternoon drinks/snacks, dinners, conferences, talk groups, outings etc. so that each volunteer is kept up to date and is able to talk about the Association’s activities. Ecoute, Réconfort (Listening, Comfort): these two words symbolise the work of all our volunteers.
Our group is made up of 20 people: offering patients the compassion and understanding of various countries: Monaco, France, Finland, Holland, Italy, Ireland, England, Morocco, Great Britain, Asia, United States…
