Visitors for seniors wanted in Mangere

16:00, Mar 19 2014

Wanted: People who like a cuppa and a catch-up.

Age Concern Counties Manukau is in dire need of volunteer visitors to meet with lonely older people on a regular basis, especially in Mangere.

Visitors provide older people with increased social support, connectedness and interaction, the charity's chief executive officer Wendy Bremner says.

About 10 to 15 new clients are referred to the service every month but only two to five new volunteers so "we are always playing catch-up", she says.
