Kind, caring people needed to assist older people

You don’t need to be an expert. All you need is patience, friendliness and empathy. We need people of varying ages, cultural backgrounds and experiences. Whatever your circumstances as long as you can give some time to help older people, we would be glad to have your help.

For full-time employees, why not ask your employer to support Employer Volunteering in work time, outside work hours, or even in your lunch break once a week?.
