The Volunteers of Scotland Health Care System support our mission to provide quality health care. They do this with activities such as greeting visitors and family members at the reception desks, delivering mail and flowers, providing wheelchair transport, assisting patients at discharge, and support our staff in both patient and non-patient areas with a variety of duties.

Personal Home Monitoring System
Health Watch is an affordable system that works through the telephone and is easily installed by a hospital volunteer. The system helps people continue to live in their homes, maintaining their independence and quality of life with the assurance that help is just a call away.

The emergency communication mode provides enhanced sensitivity of both microphone and speaker volume, which significantly increases the ability of the Response Center to hear a person - even a sound as soft as a whisper. The Personal Transmitter Pendant, worn at all times on a neck cord or around the wrist, is compact, portable and waterproof.
