Your Case Worker will be there to support you in your journey with Community Services keeping in regular contact by phone and home visits. They will work on some agreed goals with you to support you in gaining the confidence to become more connected with the local community. Together with the Volunteer Coordinator, they can match you with dedicated volunteers who receive training in understanding issues older people face, communication and safeguarding. Our volunteers can help with things such as helping you to reconnect with your community – accompanying you to a local group or activity, taking you to GP or hospital appointments; maybe learning new skills, or rekindling old hobbies. You may want to get online, learn how to do internet shopping or keeping in touch with people using your phone, computer or tablet; perhaps you would like to meet more people, get out and about more, become involved and reduce those feelings of loneliness and isolation. We will aim to work with you for up to six to nine months to ensure you are able to complete your goals.
