Carer Support Volunteer - You've Got This

Are You Ok?

‘It’s extremely good of you to do something like this.  I can’t believe there are people like you out there.'

Our carers are doing an amazing job in looking after the person in their home who is not well. Understandably though they get tired, stressed or find they have no time to take care of the weekly things that must happen in order for a household to function.

This is where our volunteers step in.

We can link a volunteer up directly with a carer:
– for a cuppa or a chat.
– to take them shopping or to their appointments.
– simply to ring them once a week and ask how they are.
– to sit with a client so the carer can go out or have a rest.

If you are someone who is compassionate, are able to listen and offer support from the sidelines without taking over, then this may be the role for you.
