A young volunteer finds reward in caring for patients at end of life

Cordelia Prowd has been a valued member of the volunteer team at Calvary Health Care Bethlehem since she arrived a year ago.

In her early 20s, Cordelia is younger than most volunteers at the health service but loves the experience of working with other volunteers helping to improve the quality of life of palliative patients.

“Staff here are friendly and compassionate. They have a lot of respect for patients and are committed to making sure that their dignity is maintained”

“I feel fortunate to be able to spend time with the patients. The time we spend together, particularly in the Day Centre, allows them to forget about being a patient and be themselves for a little while”.

Volunteers like Cordelia are integral to the delivery of holistic care at Calvary Bethlehem.
