Home Visitor: Kingsthorpe, Northampton
- 1-2 Hours Weekly
- Kingsthorpe, Northampton
We are looking for a friendly volunteer to visit our WRNS veteran at home. Prior to losing her sight, she enjoyed reading but now spends her time listening to the radio, audio books and TV. She would like a volunteer who can provide companionship and read the newspaper to her.
By providing regular companionship, social interaction and building a positive one-to-one relationship you can help to reduce the effects of isolation so commonly experienced by our veterans. Your positivity, friendliness and communication can make the world of difference to their day to day lives.
Volunteers need to be over the age of 18 years and able to travel independently to and from our veterans home. Reliability, punctuality and trustworthiness are essential requirements for this role as are good listening and interpersonal skills. An understanding of the importance of confidentiality and relationship boundaries is key to this role. We will give you the necessary training, induction and support to be confident and enjoy your volunteering.
