VOLUNTEER WITH US
We believe that by befriending the elderly and providing them with companionship, together with the opportunity to take part in leisure activities, we will be able to dramatically improve the quality of their lives. We can make this happens by:
Visiting the elderly at care homes every fortnight, and talking to them over the phone at least once a week. We are also implementing a pen pal initiative that will enable us to maintain regular correspondence with care home residents.
Organising recreational and leisure activities, from dance and dinner days/nights, to attending comedy shows, ruffle/quiz for fun, birthday parties for residents and many more activities.
We are piloting an ICT project that includes consultation sessions with elderly care home residents, their relatives, and care home managers to implement an internet platform to connect residents with a broad circle of family and friends, who due to personal circumstances may not be able to travel to visit their loved ones.
The purpose of these activities is to prevent our seniors from becoming isolated and feeling lonely.
