Befriender

We are looking for people to work one to one with our residents who need a bit more encouragement to get involved with activities and interact with people. We hope that you will have the patience and understanding to get to know the individual person and perhaps come up with ways of helping them to take part in everyday life in our home. Our volunteers help us to provide a stimulating environment for residents, bringing lots of fun, laughter, news and involvement from the local community. We are keen that people who live in Foxburrow Grange can continue to enjoy doing their usual daily chores and take part in stimulating activities.

Training available in dementia awareness.

Skills

We are looking for people who are friendly and welcoming. Many of our residents enjoy a good chat, so if you are a cheerful and outgoing person we'd love to hear from you. It doesn't matter if you can only spare a couple of hours now and then or on a weekly basis - we would welcome your help.
