Virtual Friendly Visiting for a Senior
Normandale Center for Healing & Wholeness
This opportunity is virtual.
Do you enjoy speaking with seniors? Making someone smile? Lifting someone up during times of uncertainty? Making connections?
The "Friendly Visitor" will be trained and matched with an elder in the community and may work with 1-2 people to do virtual friendly visiting on a regular basis.
The Engagement Coordinator with the Center can provide virtual activity ideas.
The senior may enjoy someone reading to them.
This could be done via phone call, or zoom.
Key principles to this program include: showing respect, allowing time to build relationship & trust. Training, supervision, and support are provided by the Volunteer Coordinator.
