You may or may not want to research this further; but I'm doing mental health nursing at uni in September and I've done months and months of volunteering at one of my local hospitals on the ward experience. It's under the Royal Voluntary Service and you do shifts on a ward with older patients, it's not ideal to do it with older patients but you can do the volunteering as many times as you want, even at more than one hospital. I do 2 hours at 2 hospitals each week and it's amazing experience and it's the reason why I've got my uni offers.
You do things such as:
-encourage them to eat, drink, move around if suitable
-take them to appointments if they're mobile within the hospital
It's up to you if you want to research it further but you can have a look at that if you want.. good luck. (Just Google it if you want to)
Btw- the volunteers (at my local hospital anyway) are mostly medicine applicants and they've had success with it also for uni offers etc.
