Description Sharing your time can make a difference
A friendly visitor can be life-changing for seniors who are isolated. Sharing a hobby, going for a walk, playing a board game or cards, reading or enjoying conversation, can make the difference. Your visits are a gift that makes a world of difference to someone who is alone. Volunteers regularly visit a senior in their home and may occasionally go on an outing together.
