Older Adults’ Service calls for volunteers

The Buckinghamshire Mind Older Adults’ Service urgently needs volunteers to help deliver our vital service in Prestwood. Pippin Club is held every Monday for people who have become isolated in the local community through dementia or memory loss.

Through a small friendly group setting, the Older Adults’ Service provides support, companionship and stimulation through Pippin Club and also Park Club in Chesham.

Our specialist workers develop close working relationships with all our service users and a real understanding of their needs. Each person is seen as an individual and is treated with respect and dignity. We actively encourage our service users to continue to have a voice which will be listened to. We place a strong emphasis on developing good working relationships with families and carers in order to help us provide the best quality support.

The needs of relatives and carers are also important to us. We hold regular coffee mornings, which provide relatives and carers with the opportunity to meet with others and share their experiences. We also offer support and sign-posting to other organisations.

Pippin Club is held every Monday from 9.30am to 2pm in Prestwood.

For more information or to volunteer, please contact Julia Thornton 0n 01494 771131 or email julia.thornton@bucksmind.org.uk
