Your Donation will Make a Difference
We ask our volunteers to befriend the neediest residents. These are often those with dementia or other conditions which make communication difficult for them. Many residents cannot leave their rooms to join in organised activities because of their physical condition. Some are in the final weeks of their lives. We can provide further training on older peoples’ conditions, safeguarding, communication skills. Your donation will help us recruit, train and support more volunteers in their fantastic work in helping older people living in care homes. Care Homes do a wonderful job in looking after their residents with care and compassion, but carers do not have extended periods of time to spend with residents on a one to one basis. Every pound donated helps us make residents’ time in care brighter and more fulfilling in this, the last stage of their lives.
