The Community Visitors Scheme is for older people who could benefit from having a volunteer visit them to provide friendship and company. Caring and dedicated Community Visitors Scheme volunteers visit for one a per week. The visits are relaxed and social in nature, where you might chat together, reminisce, listen to music, read the newspaper or play card games
Attached is a brochure about volunteering with Red Cross in this lovely program
With so many elderly who live at home and can become socially isolated, this is a wonderful program where Red Cross matches volunteers with people on the basis of shared interests, personality, similar backgrounds and preferences.
