lITA has an aongoing need for Friendly Visitos at lITA served facilites in El Cerrito, El Sobrante, Martinez and Pleasant hill, CA This is a specivic familiy request for a volunteer Visitor /Helper needed to spend 2 hours once a week with a younger (age 56) residents at a LITA served skilled nursing residence in El Sobrante.
Ms. S survived a massive stroke 7 years ago and fights bravely to establish better levels of mobility and communication. She is very friendly and responsive and interested in others.
She has family in the area but she needs at least one more session each week than they can manage . Conversing and possibly reading would be one part of themission and overseeing and encouraging simple prescribed physical rehabilitation movements would be another great help.
The staff at this LITA served facility are wonderful and will provide plenty of support and advice. LITA Director is well acquainted with both the resident and her family so can also be a source of more information and future suport for the volunteer.
