Phone call support to 1 elderly individual [PRE-TRAINED VOLUNTEERS ONLY]
This volunteer opportunity is only for pre-trained volunteers who started the calling program from August 8th. Each volunteer joining this support-program must have attended information/training session and be available to support ONE elderly individual, by making one phone call each week over a four-week period. In order to join this program volunteers must sign-up for all of the four-week slots below (this is important for our tracking purposes). First phone calls will be made on Saturday Aug 8th—after then a suitable day and time for calling will be determined between the volunteer and the elderly person they are supporting. Description: With most of Hong elderly self-isolating, afraid and unable to leave their homes, help from the city’s volunteers is desperately needed to support the mental health of these vulnerable individuals. The effects of social isolation can include anxiety, depression, and even cognitive decline. Volunteer roles: Each volunteer will be assigned one elderly individual to call on the phone and check in once a week. They will provide social connection and emotional support and help their district’s elderly centre to determine their well-being and immediate needs. All volunteers who attend this activity must be registered with HandsOn Hong Kong. 此義工活動只供已在8月8日開始參與此計劃的義工報名。 每個參加此計劃的義工都必須已出席我們舉行的簡介會，並且能在四週的時間內可以每週致電一位長者一次。 為了確認你參與此計劃，義工必須註冊節四服務（牽手香港員工將利用這四節服務追蹤義工的服務時數）。義工將在8月8日（星期六）首次致電長者，然後義工和他們所負責的長者之間確定合適的通話日期和時間。 活動簡介：因應疫情影響，香港大部分長者都擔心或無法外出，唯有留在家中自我隔離以保障健康，因此這些弱勢群體迫切需要義工的幫助，來支援他們的心理健康。社會隔離的影響可能包括焦慮，沮喪甚至認知能力下降。 義工角色：每位義工將獲分配一名長者的聯絡方式，義工需每週致電一次，提供社交聯繫和情感支持，並幫助中心了解他們的健康和迫切需要。 所有參加者須為牽手‧香港會員。
