Description: We are looking for a volunteer who is interested in visiting a fantastic woman with Huntington’s who lives at a care facility. She is non-verbal and uses a wheelchair (with someone else pushing). Through Lifetime Networks, she has a small circle of supportive friends and we want to add one more person to the group who can visit her at least twice per month.

Some of the things she would love to share with a new friend include: going for walks by the water, visiting in her room, watching a movie or TV together, reading out loud or an occasional group event. If you have a dog you could bring to visit, that would be even better.
Training Details: If you share some of these interests and this volunteer opportunity intrigues you, please contact Emily at Lifetime Networks at (250) 477-4112 ext. 305, or at volunteer@Lnv.ca.
