How you can help:
At Guardian Angels the main focus is on helping the elderly located in their own residential homes. Each town’s committee will decide where they feel is the greater need. Some towns play bingo once a week – but that suits the area.
Amongst visiting, we entertain, and do fund raisers. So depending on the town – the branch will adapt to that area – within reasonable limits and keeping to our objectives. The elderly register with us and complete our “I need an angel form” and also sign our indemnity form for future. Families are encouraged to know the cell number of the allocated volunteer in case of emergencies and also to discuss anything of concern.
Volunteers are mostly allocated by taking in consideration things like language, race, area they live etc. Time is taken to allocate the right volunteer to the right elderly – this can sometimes take 3 - 4 months. So don’t feel like we have forgotten about you.
