Befriending & careline

About Befriending & careline

Age UK Torbay's befriending volunteers can visit someone for a cup of tea and a chat; take them out to lunch; take them out for a trip in the car and more. It all depends on what support is needed. Volunteers visit people, perhaps for an hour each week, in their own home. A friendly face or a listening ear can make a positive difference to older people living in the community. Age UK Torbay's careline volunteers will telephone housebound people for a regular chat and to see if all is well.
