Changing the lives of the elderly
Friendly visitor, London, Ontario - June 25, 2014
I am only volunteering at this organization, however, I can tell that they really want to do what they can to make a better life for those in need, in particular, the elderly. My role is to visit the seniors who desire to build social relationships with others and by providing companionship I hope to improve their mental health. The hardest part of the job is arranging a time to get together since we need to coordinate around each others schedules (I am currently in university full-time). The most enjoyable part of the job is knowing that I may have brightened someone's day just by conversing with them.
