Auckland City Harbour News - - NEWS -

Age Con­cern’s Ac­cred­ited Vis­it­ing Ser­vice is look­ing for peo­ple to visit and vol­un­teers to make the vis­its hap­pen. The ser­vice matches com­mit­ted vis­i­tors with older clients who feel that a bit of ex­tra com­pan­ion­ship would make their week more pleas­ant and less lonely. Age Con­cern Auck­land has 280 clients on its data­base with 221 vis­ited reg­u­larly by a vol­un­teer who has been trained and se­cu­rity checked. Any­one who wants to re­ceive a vis­i­tor to help re­lieve so­cial iso­la­tion and lone­li­ness, or wants to vol­un­teer to visit a client can phone Sue Campin 820 2713 or Jenny Barker 820 2714.
