Elderly Befriender

During the session, befrienders will visit the elderly at the homes or at the Senior Activity Centre to conduct activities and interact with them. Activities differ every week, ranging from games such as jenga to art and crafts activities such as clay modelling. After getting to know the elderly and their living habits through a few sessions, befrienders will then try to impart skills to seniors to encourage them to better care for their health.

 

Fluency in one language/ dialect other than English is required.

Volunteers are required to be able to attend at least 8 out of 12 of our sessions.
