Befrienders scheme

Linda Francis, the activity organiser at Holmers House, runs an increasing size team of volunteer Befrienders, which really add to the quality of life and well-being of the residents there.

Linda explains that they are an integral part of the team by supporting the residents, all of whom have a diagnosis of dementia, by improving the quality of the residents’ lives by providing companionship, support and stimulation. They are also involved with activities and outings, and by helping out at the fetes and other in-house events

All the Befrienders are given proper training and on-going support, to ensure that both them and the residents can benefit as much as possible from the Befriending role and experience.

One of the regular befrienders, Janice, explains that ‘ I really love older people and the befriending brings me a lot of social fulfilment, being part of a team where I also have a lot of fun and laughter, and feel involved by improving the quality of life for residents.’

She adds that befriending encourages increased working with the community-by bringing members of the wider community into the Home, and also by encouraging increased visits out to community – even just sitting out in the park with a resident watching the world go by, as part of that everyday community involvement, is so important to them.

‘We enjoy the activities and outings as much as the residents do, and the individual friendships we build with them is very meaningful and heart-warming, and really adds something special to their everyday lives.’

If you would like to join our Befrienders team at Holmers House contact Linda Francis at the home.
