Rumford Hospital Volunteers Visit Patients to Listen, Chat and Offer Books and Games

One of the special programs the Rumford Hospital’s volunteers participate in is the Patient Visitor Program.

These visits give inpatients a chance to talk to a helpful and friendly person about their experiences in the hospital. Such chats have led to minor changes here and there to make sure our patients are always comfortable! The Patient Visitor volunteers are especially welcomed by patients who may not have family or friends who are nearby or able to visit frequently.

The volunteers also have a cart in tow, loaded with books, magazines and puzzles, to help keep our patients entertained as they recover.
