Care Home Volunteers

Charity description

Care Home Volunteers logo
Care Home Volunteers addresses the loneliness and isolation that many older people face when they enter residential care. We try to bring fun and enjoyment into their lives and give them opportunities for social interaction.

Care Home Volunteers recruits, trains and deploys volunteers in registered care homes for older people in order to increase the social contact and wellbeing of those residents and reduce their social isolation.

We offer volunteers a bespoke training programme to prepare them to volunteer in care homes. The training is five sessions of two hours that take place on a weekly basis. Volunteers are supported to visit care homes between each training session so that they can discuss their experiences in subsequent training sessions.

Volunteers will learn about the different needs of older people living in care home settings, confidentiality, privacy, safeguarding, dementia, communication and activities.
