Befriending Volunteer Wanted in Maryport

Published on 25 February 2020 11:59 AM

We are urgently seeking a volunteer to provide befriending support to a lady in the Maryport area.

The lady has suffered a stroke and has a degree of dementia which can sometimes make her appear rude or bad tempered.

Although the lady lives with her husband and son, her health issues mean that she now finds it difficult to get out and socialise. Prior to her stroke and dementia diagnosis, the lady enjoyed walking, nature watching and spending time in the great outdoors.

We are seeking a female volunteer who shares similar interests, to provide weekly befriending support to the lady - either in person or over the phone. This person must be understanding of the lady’s condition and comfortable with her verbal outbursts.

If you think you could help, please contact Sandra on:

01900 844680
