Home Visits & Accompanied Outings:
Individual support can be provided through companionship visits to people who are socially isolated and lonely. Visits are undertaken by volunteers on a fortnightly or monthly basis and last for 2 hours per visit. Home visit activities include reading books, help with writing letters, playing board games or just having a cuppa and a chat. Accompanied outings assist people to do things that keep them connected to the local area by enjoying company and strengthening their social interaction. Like walking through the local nursery, shopping for a special gift, attending local medical appointments, or simply enjoying a snack and chat in a local cafe.
Our organisation coordinates three social groups which meet fortnightly in room 3, Ulladulla. Social groups operate from 10.00am to 2.00pm with Community transport organised for group members who require to be picked up and delivered home. People who attend enjoy a freshly prepared meal in the company of others, a range of activities, occasional outings, but most importantly have a lot of fun while supporting their independence and social interaction.
With the help of volunteers we also operate a card making group for the crafty person in you, or a scrabble group, for those than enjoy some brain challenging. Volunteers facilitate these groups and transport can be arranged to assist people to attend.
