Volunteer Home Visitors – North Wales, Rhyl
Time Commitment: One morning or afternoon a week
We have a number of elderly blind veterans who would welcome some male company one morning or afternoon a week for tea and chat. Having someone pop in and engage in conversation is greatly appreciated when visual impairment restricts such activities as reading and getting out and about. In some cases you would also be giving the wives of these gentlemen the opportunity for a little respite and 'me' time which they will greatly appreciate too. You will need good communication and listening skills, empathy and patience with people who are visually impaired. We will give you the necessary training, induction and support to be confident and enjoy your volunteering. If you think you would enjoy some time with one of our veterans who have often lead very interesting lives and have fascinating stories to tell.
We will support you with training and an induction, out of pocket expenses and ongoing support so that you can get as much out of your visits as our member does.
