A REASSURING PRESENCE!

Aimed at elderly people suffering from loneliness, in order to bring them presence and comfort. 

How ?

  • By a call: A volunteer calls to discuss and bring some sunshine to the person's day.
  • By a visit: A volunteer goes to the home to keep him company, to bring him comfort.

The manager makes a suitable match with a volunteer who has similar interests (walking, cycling, reading, hobbies, animals, etc.).
