BEFRIENDING AND CONNECTING
Having a volunteer has "tranformed my life!"
Our trained volunteers offer friendship and support to elderly residents in care homes. Research suggests that older people in care homes are twice as likely to feel lonely as older people living in the community.
Support is all about building a friendship with a care home resident.
This can include simply chatting, taking them out for a walk, or doing a crossword.
Our volunteers help residents in different ways. This includes helping with IT skills, playing a board game or doing gardening with a resident.
