Volunteers needed for Alzheimer’s Society Befriending Service

Befriending ServiceAlzheimer's Society - which co-runs BMH's Dementia Wellbeing Service - is recruiting volunteers to its Befriending Service. The charity is looking for people who would like to offer social contact or share mutual hobbies and interests with people with dementia.

"To see the person with dementia that you are supporting smile and enjoy your company is a marvellous thing in itself.

"Together, we have been able to build a lovely relationship. The relationship is something I will keep with me," says Elizabeth, a Volunteer Befriender.

Volunteers will provide companionship either within someone's home or in their local community, helping the person to participate in social or recreational activities, such as walking, enjoying similar hobbies together or having a chat over a cup of coffee.

Please contact Katherine Hargreaves, Volunteering Officer, on 01452 525 222 or at k.hargreaves@alzheimers.org.uk to find out more.
