Alzheimers Dementia Support: Befriending for Carers and People with Dementia

Could you spare an hour to sit down for a tea and a chat with someone who may feel housebound? By becoming a befriender you will prevent loneliness and isolation of people with dementia and their carers. You will be teamed up with another volunteer to provide regular home visits (& calls) to the person with dementia and their carer. The day/time of the visits will be agreed between yourself, the other volunteer and carer/person with dementia. So this may suit someone who is only available fortnightly or in the evening or weekend. No experience or qualifications necessary. There will be no personal care. Full training and ongoing support provided. For a more detailed role description please visit: Or contact Santok directly.
