Social Group Helper - New Milton

Dementia Support Hampshire & IOW are looking for people to help out at our Support & Social Group in New Milton every Wednesday afternoon 2pm-4.30pm.

We arrive at 2pm to set up the room with various activity tables to include arts & crafts, cognitive stimulation games and reminiscence. We also have a conversation table and a quiet table for those that wish to chat or read the newspaper.

We serve tea/coffee and biscuits throughout the two hour social.

Helpers will either host a table, or help with refreshments.

We have an annual day trip, which volunteers are invited join if they wish to, and a Christmas Party which is great fun for group members and volunteers.

Skills

This role would suit anyone who is kind and caring and enjoys helping others.

Lived experience through caring for a loved one would be advantageous but not essential as full training will be provided.
