Volunteers required for Alzheimer’s Society Hounslow Community Support Service (posted 11 July)

(Published on 11/07/2018)

Our Community Support service is for people affected by dementia in the borough of Hounslow who want to stay active and healthy by doing things they enjoy… you can help

The service aims to:

• support people to stay involved and active in their local community.
• link people with a trained volunteer to help them to continue with activities they might not feel confident enough to do alone.
• provide one-to-one practical help to support with light chores, cooking or shopping and emotional support regarding feelings of isolation or loneliness.
• provides regular respite time for the person with dementia and their carer.

 

We are looking for volunteers who would like to make a difference by assisting us in providing these 1-to-1 opportunities as part of our Community Support Project. Training and supervision is provided.

 

You will not be required to provide personal care as part of this service
