Volunteers should enjoy working with older adults. Friendly visitors provide a sense of belonging/community and brighten someone else's day. The individual is an elderly woman living in Newington. She is interested in the advocacy and environment and has started a few campaigns in her local area. She loves to talk about the environmental issues and and formulate ways to create awareness of the current issues. She is well spoken and wants to meet someone who would be able to share ideas and ideally advocate for the environment. She's done some interesting things locally but is feeling like she can't do as much as she used to and is hoping to meet someone who wants to do more than she can at this time.
She'd benefit greatly from a friendly visitor that has similar interests and could provide intellectual stimulation.
