CAN YOU HELP?

Alzheimer’s Society Side-by-Side project to the Vale of Glamorgan have a person living with dementia in Llantwit who is very keen on gardening and needs a volunteer to help her. Side by Side is an Alzheimer’s Society service that helps people with dementia to keep doing the things they love with the support of a volunteer. Their free one-to-one support makes it easier for people with dementia, who might sometimes feel isolated or find it difficult to leave their homes, remain active and feel part of their local community. By doing things like going for a walk, to a football match, or joining a local class together, our volunteers can support people with dementia to take up hobbies and get out and about. What they do together is entirely based on what the person with dementia wants. Side-by-Side volunteers need to be available for 2-3 hours per week, and need to commit to the project for a minimum of six months. Would any of you be interested in supporting the lady to continue gardening? Provided full training and support.
