Home in my home

Care home residents enjoy receiving visitors and like the chance to get out and about. However, staff often have their hands full with their routine care tasks. Volunteers from the ‘Home in my home’ scheme visit older people in care homes. They chat with them over a cup of coffee, organize entertainment activities or take them for a walk or a trip out. This helps to make the home feel more like home.

In 2012, 73 branches and 873 volunteers were involved with ‘Home in my home’.
