Can you befriend someone lonely?

Family Carers Ireland are looking for volunteers throughout Kildare to give one or two hours of their time per week to visit an elderly person in their own home who are experiencing loneliness and isolation.

This is a one-to-one social visit which may involve a chat with a cup of tea, a walk or share a hobby.

This is a volunteer lead programme coordinated by Maggie Lally who is the Carers Support Manager in Kildare based in the Primary Health Care Centre in Newbridge. Full training provided. Volunteers will be Garda vetted.

“A simple gift of time can make a huge difference in a person’s life”
