Activities include but are not limited to; having a cup of tea/coffee (in home or at coffee house) or helping with computer skills or watching T.V. or playing a game, going for a walk with them, (their pet may join if you are comfortable with that) This position is flexible in both time (am or pm) and location. Visits will be limited to one hour and a half (1h30min) and may vary in frequency and times upon request of seniors or volunteers. Volunteers are assigned to seniors to help build a steady rapport. Please contact us to meet with us in person to talk about all the details.
