Visiting Volunteers

Would you enjoy the company of a regular visitor to share a chat, an activity or outing with? Are you living alone or don’t have access to a car?

An Enliven Visiting Volunteer can stop in regularly to share stories, help you get to an appointment or enjoy a leisure activity together. You and your visitor set your own agenda and simply enjoy the companionship of shared experiences and conversation.

This service covers the Dunedin and Mosgiel areas and our Visiting Volunteers range in age from 18 to 80+ years. Volunteers are mainly retired or semi-retired women, but some are secondary or tertiary students, and a few are men!

Clients of this service are generally older adults aged in their 50s through to their late 80s but there are no age limits!

If you would like to find out more, please call our friendly Visiting Volunteer Coordinator Judy Hayes on 4777 115
