Day Centre Volunteer Age UK
Posted for Age UK Northamptonshire
A dynamic person who has an empathy and genuine interest in older people is needed at our Day Centre in the heart of Daventry.
Serving approximately 12 residents of Daventry and the surrounding villages, your role would be to sit and talk to the clients, help serve refreshments and lunch and help deliver activities either on a 1-1 basis or a group.
Many of our clients are faced with numerous challenges of later life, including dementia.
No personal care or manual handling is involved with this role.
No specific qualifications are required - but we ask that volunteers are willing and able to support our clients and genuinely enjoy being in their company.
