Kingston Hospital Dining Companions

Today, I met up with Elizabeth Meatyard who set up Kingston Hospital Dining Companions. The initiative aims to provide patients at Kingston Hospital some companionship and help with eating at meal times.

There is a rota for volunteers, so the commitment is scaleable, and the program has increased from 30 to around 300 volunteers. It means imobile or elderly patients get some practical help with simple things (for example, removing wrappers around meals) as well as a some friendly company.

It's a great idea, and if you might be interested in getting involved with this or any of the other volunteering projects at Kingston hispital, please click here for further details.
