We need more members to train for hand and arm massage. A worthwhile service offering a light massage to the hands and lower arm to elderly women usually in residential homes. For most of these elderly women, often with dementia, this is the first physical contact they have had from anyone in many years. Those that do this say it is such a satisfying rota and the volunteer gets so much from it too. Those interested will be trained by the League, DBS checked and we will then give you a special bag with oil and other useful items.
We currently have three rotas waiting for volunteers in this service.
We have a need for a hand and arm volunteer in a Shul in Southgate on Tuesday 30th July.
Jewish Care would like to offer hand and arm massage to their 10 elderly residents attending a tea party at a North London home on Tuesday 13th August from 14.30 to 16.30.
We also need a few people to offer this service to residents at Lady Sarah Cohen in Friern Barnet.
