I have a lifetime of experience with assisting the elderly. It began with my grandmother. As a little girl I would spend every available opportunity I had to sit with, talk to, question and listen to grandma. I would “help” grandma with her medication, and had much delight in hearing what every tablet was for. I would brush grandma’s hair and do anything I could to help her. I just LOVED my grandmother so much!
These precious moments had such a profound effect on me and have set off a lifetime of supporting the elderly in any way I could.
After grandma passed away I started voluntary work in an aged care facility during my secondary school years. Since then I have always been assisting an elderly person in one way or another.
The one thing I have learned while visiting the elderly is that they need, crave, companionship. They, like all of us, need someone to talk to someone who is interested in them personally.
This awareness, along with the desire to return to the workforce, impels me to provide a service where the need for a visitor can be met.
I Visit U serves all sectors of the community - businesses, families, the time poor, hospital patients and their families, new residents, visitors in the region and of course, the elderly.
