Care navigators

Care navigators

“Our care navigator has been very good and totally reliable. She’s allowed my wife time for Pilates and a little time for herself. Has encouraged me to speak, converse, remember.”

Our volunteer care navigators offer practical and emotional support to patients and their families. One of our trained volunteers could visit you at home to:

  • Talk about your concerns
  • Collect shopping, prescriptions and library books
  • Accompany you on walks or trips out
  • Stay with you when your spouse or carer goes out
  • Help with tasks such as filling in forms and writing letters
  • Help you access digital services
  • Tell you about other support that you’re entitled to

“Catherine is my care navigator who visits weekly. She is excellent and has been so good at helping me.”

If you think you or your loved one would benefit from a care navigator, please speak to your Hospiscare nurse.


Are you interested in becoming a care navigator?

Can you offer three or four hours a week to help someone with a life-limiting illness? You’ll receive training and support, and we’ll cover your travel expenses. Volunteering can be hugely rewarding.
