Mind Over Matter Walker  with Brockworth House Care Centre (Ref: 541)
 
Opportunity picture
MHA is delighted to be supported by over 5,000 volunteers across the UK.

For some, volunteering is a fun and satisfying way to fill in spare time and meet like minded people. For others it is a way of contributing to the welfare of older people in their local community. Many find themselves acquiring interests and skills that might never otherwise have surfaced, and friendships formed can be enduring.

Older people have a wide range of interests and activities. There is also a greater challenge to meet the needs of our more frail residents and tenants, in order for them to have an active and fulfilled life. This requires more volunteers working in a one to one setting, as well as with groups.

Do you like the outdoors? Do you like walking?

Brockworth House Care Centre have a resident who is very physically energetic and requires a lot of exercise. He walks briskly and needs steering in the right direction. The resident cannot verbally communicate but understands simple instructions. You would be guiding the resident ensuring that he doesn't put himself in danger.

Volunteers from all age groups are welcomed, however the minimum age for this role is 18. DBS checks are carried out, however a criminal record will not necessarily bar you from volunteering.
