"What a difference some company can make."
This service works to decrease the level of social isolation and loneliness of older people in the community. We provide a trained, caring volunteer who will visit regularly for companionship and friendship.
Are you an older person finding the days long and would like some company?
Are you an older person finding it difficult to get out and about?
Do you have some spare time and would like to become a Volunteer Visitor?
The Age Concern Hamilton Accredited Visiting Service provides companionship and support for older people who may be lonely and socially isolated. A number of older people in our community, for various reasons, spend most of each day of each week alone.
Age Concern Hamilton provides this to central Hamilton and rural areas with over 320 visitors visiting older people in their homes every week. As a Volunteer Visitor you would enhance the well-being and quality of life of an older person, complement existing services and offer them the opportunity of building new links in the community.
The visitor spends exclusive quality time with their older person on a regular basis.
