Slough Befrienders is a network of volunteers who visit older people in their homes to provide friendly social contact and help them to maintain their independence. Volunteers will spend an hour or two a week providing regular company, checking they are safe and well, assisting with shopping or food preparation, general household jobs and helping the older person to assess other services if necessary. You will need to have a friendly and caring personality, with an understanding of the needs of older people. You will have good communication and listening skills with a non-judgemental attitude towards an individual’s circumstances.
