Italian-speaking Volunteers

  • May 4, 2013 · 12:00 PM

Ciao a tutti. I am working on a project for the small Italian community organisation Unione degli Italiani nel Mondo (UIM-Ottawa) which entails matching volunteers to seniors who are home-bound and who would like an occasional visitor (the volunteer). Most of these seniors are quite elderly but independent and living in their own homes. We provide training, and volunteers must obtain their Vulnerable Persons police check before being matched.  We ask that volunteers give 2 hours of their time every other week or so. They must speak Italian because they spend the better part of their visit chatting with the senior.  If and when the weather gets warmer, we are allowed to go outside for a short walk or in the garden with the client, but we are not personal care attendants nor do we do household chores.

The date is now finalised. It will beheld Saturday, May 11, 2013 between 11:00am - 16:45. For more information, and address for training location, please send me an email: [masked]

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
