Our new volunteer – Sue

Social isolation is a perceived satisfaction of their social connectedness level. Social isolation can mean lacking encouragement from family or friends. People will suffer from social isolation have been found to raise stress levels, which can turn into depression or anxiety. Social isolation can negatively affect one’s long-term immune system, thus increasing inflammation.

With the decreasing rates of volunteers since the start of the COVID19 pandemic, we sought the residents’ family and friends’ time and assistance as a volunteer to help reduce the forms of social isolation.

The types of activities provide social support through simple leisure activities. We have had great feedback and are organising activities for some new family volunteers.

In this picture, we wish to introduce Sue, who has volunteered to read small books or magazines to the residents weekly on Tuesdays at 10:30 am, with the first session on 22 February 2022. The residents have truly enjoyed having new volunteers coming into the facility.
