Walking Buddy - Maldon

A volunteer is needed to offer company and conversation while walking outdoors with an elderly gentleman with mild dementia.

This talkative gentleman likes to walk (using a walking stick) and is interested cars, sport, football and bowling.

The volunteer would meet the elderly gentleman at Boucherne Care Home on Holloway Road, Heybridge and accompany him on a walk (or perhaps for a pint), returning with him to the Care Home afterwards.

Skills

You should be friendly and happy to chat. 

Some understanding of dementia would be helpful.
