The opportunity to have a relaxed conversation with a person, whils carrying out a basic manicure. Spending time with the person, fling their nails, moisturising hands and applying nail varnish.
Reading newspapers to people so that they are still aware of what is happening in the community. There is also the opportunity for reminiscence work, by reading poems and short extracts from books, to act as memory joggers. This will encourage people to share their own stories and talk about their interests.
We are looking for somebody who can assist people fromSt Rognvald's House to get out and about. We plan to have weekly afternoon bus runs, and need someone to assist people on and off the bus and to accompany them on the trip. The person would be expected to ensure people are comfortable, safe and to chat to them and perhaps point out things of interest.
This could also be an opportunity for residents to socialise if they are interested in the work but not physically able to carry out heavy work. We have courtyard and garden areas that activities can be carried out in.
