I managed to get a volunteer position at a nursing home. I'm just wondering if anyone has done a similar thing and just what it's like in general? And any tips? Thank you

Hi
I volunteer in a nursing home.
There are loads of roles for volunteers, I spend time with a dementia group and a lady with learning disabilities. Someone else I know writes emails to families for residents who can't see very well.
Sometimes the residents can get upset, but they are usually ok again in a few minutes. Just try not to get flustered or scared if someone starts crying.
Do you know what you will be doing?

Just keep your positive attitude and remember that your there for other people.

If you do that you won't get dragged down by anything and you'll be able to really make a difference
