Linked to Life can arrange for a volunteer to visit you on a regular basis for companionship and a friendly chat. Staff at Linked to Life take the time to discover your particular preferences, interest, hobbies and cultural background, and match you with a volunteer with likeminded interests, to maximise the benefits of your relationship with your volunteer. You may like to use the time with your volunteer to play cards, chess or other game, discuss mutual issues of interest, or do some craft or hobby together. In home services can also include more practical activities such as assisting you to write letters or cards to friends or relatives, help you sort paperwork, reading or even exploring the internet together. In home services are especially valued by long distance family members, knowing that someone is looking out for their loved one on a regular basis, or even having a volunteer home visit on a short-term basis, during times that primary carers or family members are absent.
