We aim to be flexible around the interests of the person in terms of the activities they do with the volunteer during the visit, although they may include:
Having a general chat at home
Talking over worries or concerns
Going out in the local community
Please note we cannot offer help with personal care such as washing and dressing, the preparation of meals, or the administering of medication.
To use the befriending service you will need to:
Live in Sandwell
Have a diagnosis of Dementia
