North Shore Hos­pi­tal is on the look­out for friendly, car­ing vol­un­teers of vary­ing ages, gen­ders and eth­nic back­grounds. ‘‘Hos­pi­tals can be stress­ful places and our vol­un­teers can of­ten make the ex­pe­ri­ence a lit­tle eas­ier for peo­ple to deal with,’’ vol­un­teer co­or­di­na­tor Genevieve Kabuya said. ‘‘To be greeted with a warm smile and es­corted to wher­ever you’re go­ing - or to be com­forted with a lis­ten­ing ear or a cup of tea can make a big dif­fer­ence.’’ Vol­un­teers were needed to meet and greet pa­tients and vis­i­tors, pro­vide help on wards such as mak­ing bev­er­ages and com­fort­ing pa­tients, plus look­ing for any health and safety con­cerns. Kabuya said any form of time com­mit­ment would be ap­pre­ci­ated. Con­tact her on 021 544 862 for more in­for­ma­tion.
