Would you like to find out more about our Seniors Helping Seniors Program? We are inviting anyone who is interested to join us in our monthly discussion-meeting, and to talk to us about our program as it has evolved over the past few years, with a view to a possible interest in becoming our coordinator, if you like what you see, and if this appeals to you at all. This is a part time, paid position
Our main aim has been to give assistance to any seniors on the island who need it, within our capability, and to ensure that no-one is isolated, who would prefer not to be. We have a weekly lunch somewhere, and will arrange for a driver if necessary. We have a growing list of volunteers, who help out in various interesting ways that also suit their own schedules and we have offered some wonderful short courses in subjects such as photography, computer operation, Spanish conversation, etc. all of which brings people together.
This has been a growing and flourishing program which has seen great results, and been immensely helpful to people.
You might also have some new and innovative ideas to share with us.
If you think you would like to find out more about it and really enjoy working with seniors, that is anyone over 50, please give Catharine at 0205 or Elinore a call at 8536.
