This role suits someone over the age of 18 who is a good listener and can commit to at least one hour per week for a social visit to an elderly lady. On the whole, what you do on your visit is up to you (our resident enjoys discussing the Bible and spiritual matters). You might also chat together, she enjoys reminiscing, listening to music, talking about food and family.

The program allows for time off due to holidays and study requirements
