About this opportunity
We have a number of Malaysian Tamil speaking residents who would benefit with having a companion to converse with in their own language.
Visits can be spent doing something both you and the residents enjoy whether that be playing a game, listening to music, chatting, reminiscing or going for a walk.
No special skills are needed except for a friendly and caring nature and good listening and communication skills. Our friendly team will be there to guide and support you.
As little as half an hour a week can make a significant difference to someone’s life.
If you enjoy having a chat and have some time to share this role could be for you!
