Meet and Eat! Is a new pilot project that aims to target older adults who are socially isolated, living alone, and in particular those who are vulnerable due to physical, mental or cognitive impairment and living in the Roundwood, Laragh, Ashford and Newtownmountkennedy Areas.
12 volunteers are being recruited to assist with preparation of nutritious meals and providing companionship at mealtime once per week in the older persons home. Training will be provided for volunteers.
If you know of any vulnerable adults in the target area who would benefit from this intervention or if you know a suitable volunteer please contact Wicklow Dementia Support on 089 4286928 or Email [email protected].
Volunteer recruitment & training will take place in January 2018 with the programme being rolled out in February.
