Volunteer befrienders will regularly visit people with combined sight & hearing loss, helping them to do more of the things they enjoy. This could include a visit to the local café, leisure activities such as rambling, help with information technologies, assistance with simple DIY tasks or a cup of tea and chat - whatever the individual wants. The volunteers do not provide a personal care service so will not be able to help with activities such as lifting people or giving medication.
Cymru's peer support & social groups provide those with both sight and hearing impairments plus their carer
s an opportunity to meet people and make friends. At regular meetings, all members are encouraged to get involved in the decision making process to determine what activities the group should do, often including social outings
and arranging meetings to enjoy guest speakers on subjects of interest.
Meets on the last Friday of the month from 11 am to 1 pm at the Ambassador Hotel, Llandudno.
