Befriending service for older people in Dublin 15-
Volunteers needed- please give the gift of your time
Crosscare invite people in the parish to join us for our volunteer visiting service to provide companionship for older people in Dublin 15. A regular weekly visit can make a huge difference to reduce isolation and improve the quality of life for an older person.
Most visits last for an hour and usually involve nothing more than a cup of tea and chat with your friend. This simple gift, of your time and company, is all that is required.
Volunteers need be over 18 years and be willing to give at least one hour per week, ideally for at least one year.
You will be required to fill out a garda vetting form and complete training before being introduced to an older person. The next training session will take place on 6th February.
For an application form or further information please contact
Jean at Crosscare in Blancharsdstown at 01 8219892 .
Please see some of Crosscare Services and download their February newsletter here for more details:
