You will be providing one-on-one visits to one of our clients at their house or residential care facility. During these visits, you might sit and chat, work on a hobby together, discuss the news, read a book, or listen to music together. If the care recipient is able, they might take a walk or go on an outing together. The visit duration and activity will be person-centred and dependent on the needs of the older person.
