Description

Many residents would love to have a special friend to spend time with. Perhaps to go for a walk, play a game of scrabble, or just sit and chat over a cup of tea. So many of our residents have led rich and interesting lives and would love to share their memories with a friend. Friendly visitors are especially important for residents with no families or whose loved ones live far away.
