I'm just wondering what do other people do when they volunteer and how people's experiences vary.
-Where did you volunteer?
-What was your role and what did you do?
-How did you find this volunteering opportunity?
-How is/was your experience overall, what was good and what was bad?
-I am volunteering at a care home.
-I spoon feed the residents as some are unable to use their hands at lunch and then I try and talk to them which doesn't work out most of the time, as most have dementia and some don't even talk or are very muddled and mumble a lot
-How I found this opportunity: My sister's friend volunteered there and recommended the place.
-It is quite a good experience as I get to help the residents in a small way, but I just wish I could communicate with them better, and I'm sometimes not sure if I have much of an impact.
