New Initiative: Companions Home Aid

There is a new initiative set up by the Companions called Companions Home Aid where we are establishing volunteering opportunities with the OSJCT care homes. Companions dropped off individual plants to three Oxford care homes (Marston, Longlands and Isis House), Chiltern Court in Henley, Paternoster in Cirencester, St Wilfred’s in Arundel and our regular London care homes (Wimbledon, Putney, Kensington and Royal Chelsea Hospital) in celebration of St Johns Day. A total of over 500 plants have been delivered, each with a book mark with a prayer on it from Mother Theresa. The plan is to establish links with the OSJCT care homes whereby volunteers are matched up with each home to assist with activities such as flower arranging, tea parties and gardening etc. At each home we received a warm welcome from the residents and staff.
