Christiane epitomizes everything that it means to be a volunteer. She was matched with her protégé over two years ago and she visits her weekly. Her protégé Mary-Ann is in her 90’s and is socially isolated. She doesn’t get out much due to her age and her physical health. Christiane provides much-needed emotional and social support. When the weather is more cooperative, they go venture out to the hairdresser or on short outings. They chat over coffee and Mary-Ann reminisces about the past. Without Christiane, Mary-Ann’s days would be very lonely.
Many thanks Christiane!
