Therapeutic Care Volunteer
When We Need You
From 01/01/2012 onwards
British Red Cross volunteers are trained and equiped to deliver Therapeutic Care by way of a gentle massage. The skill is intended to relieve pain and stress and alleviate symptoms of illness and is often provided to the elderly or those who suffer from medical pain. Other than the delivery of this massage our volunteers take the opportunity to chat with the client not only relaxing them but also providing social stimulation and a feeling of well being.
