German speaking volunteers are needed to visit an elderly person in home in the Flagstaff Hill, Seaview Downs, Prospect, St. Agnes and Brompton areas who needs a visitor. As a community visitor, you add to the client's quality of life by being a companion and friend. We look at things like the client and your background, interests, hobbies, likes and dislikes, languages spoken and so on when we match.

Community Visitors visit at least 10 visits for six months (Jan-June, July-Dec). Your visit may include reading, chatting, doing crosswords, reminiscing, watching a favourite TV programs, or listening to music. If the client is able to, she might like to take a walk in the garden. The activities you undertake will depend on their interests and health.
