Tutukaka Coasters; become a biographer for our patients
Help patients write about their lives or a time in their lives, or letters or cards for family. This is one of the most rewarding roles for community volunteers. Time available can be short or long depending on a person's illness. This role is about listening, transcribing, formatting and above all about a short relationship.
A well set out training process which includes mentorship from fellow biographers, understanding how our in-patient unit and base operates and becoming part of a team of caring and interested people is waiting for you.
Be able to use a digital recorder of some kind, like a smart phone, or be a shorthand expert, be able to place images in documents. Be a good/thoughtful listener who abides by our values.
