HAHAV is a registered charity

providing Hospice at Home as a volunteer service for the local community in North Ceredigion. The Hospice mission is to provide practical, social and emotional support to patients living with advanced illness, incurable progressive, and their careers, in the comfort of their own homes. The service complements and works closely with the Specialist Palliative Care Team, GPs, district

nurses, and health providers, third sector and social care professionals who provide palliative care locally. Volunteers do not replace or take over the care and support provided by the statutory services, and do not provide direct nursing care. Volunteers are the backbone of

the service. The volunteers come from all walks of life and they are from a range of different ages as well. They fulfil a number of roles as part of the Hospice at Home Volunteer team. The team include sitters who communicate directly with patients, their carers and families in the home where the patient lives. Volunteers also assist in the charity shops in Pier Street. There are administrative and IT volunteers who carry out a range of functions necessary to keep this active service to work effectively. Both Shops in Pier Street are the

hub of all the activity of the charity. As well as providing a base for the volunteers, patients and careers to call in, the store has already become a popular place in the community and an important source of funding for the service. The quality of the gifts and clothes at both shops and the creativity and diligence of the volunteers has become a great place for the service to be developed. Clearly, with the acquisition of two stores, the service need more volunteers, so if anyone can afford to give a few hours a week to volunteer at one of the shops, it would be very beneficial to the charity and also to the individual volunteer. Anyone interested in volunteering can call into one of the shops to get more information.
