Volunteers

St Vincent's has a number of volunteers who support staff, patients and family members. Volunteers undertake a range of tasks throughout the hospital and wear an identification badge and St Vincent's volunteers' vest.

'Angels' are specially trained volunteers who provide companionship to patients identified as being at risk of falling. Angels assist with supervision by sitting with patients and reducing anxiety through distraction and diversion. 'Angels' have also been trained by Speech Pathology and are able to assist identified patients with their meals.
