Puzzles & Shopping Visitor Volunteer - Poole
In this role you will be supporting a lovely lady in her 60's, living in supported living accommodation in Poole. She loves being out in the community, going shopping and for something to eat! She also enjoys being at home, spending her time listening to music, cooking, playing games (especially puzzles) and colouring in!
Due to her limited mobility, she uses a wheelchair both inside and outside of the home. She has limited verbal communication but she loves people sitting with her and participating in the activities she enjoys. You will be introduced and get to know the lady with support of staff, and we believe that having a Mencap visiting volunteer will make a huge difference to her.
Please note this lady would prefer a female visiting volunteer.
When & where do I need to be available?
Visits are every 2 months and can be on a Mondays or Friday morning or on the weekends. Visits will last around 1 - 2 hours.
As a Mencap Visiting Volunteer you will be :
- Reducing social isolation of people with a learning disability
- Increasing the independence and confidence of individuals with a learning disability
- Enabling people with a learning disability to fully access their local communities
