Volunteer Visiting

The primary goal of the VON Volunteer is to enhance the sense of independence and well-being of seniors and persons with disabilities who are lonely and isolated in all the communities of Chatham-Kent.  This is accomplished through one on one regular visitation.  

During your visit you provide the client with social interaction through devices such as reading a newspaper book or magazine, writing a letter or going on outings.  Visits are weekly or bi-weekly and last in duration from one to three hours.
