Need a volunteer for companionship, recently moved into a group home and would like some company, maybe play a game, make a puzzle, talk about family and background. Put together a photo booklet, sit outside and enjoy the weather. Our volunteer has no expectations, but would like someone to come out and visit with just our patient. Family does not live in the same town, but live nearby. Patient is forgetful, so might be repeating yourself a few times on questions, please don't get frustrated, we give you tools that will help you redirect the patient to other conversations. You will enjoy the visits.
