Description We are looking for an easy-going female volunteer who is interested in building a committed friendship with a woman in her mid-60s living in a care home. We are building a small circle of supportive friends who are committed to hanging out with her once or twice a month.

She has a great sense of humour and would love to spend time with animals, watch documentaries or comedy movies, cycling (with a specific apparatus signed out of her care home), accessing audiobooks, swimming, and listening to music (but not country or opera!). She is diabetic so this should be considered when having meals or snacks.

Volunteers should be aware that she has challenges with her sight and mobility. Although she needs some guidance, she dislikes when people push her chair or otherwise take over as she values her independence.
