Eva Dugaro – Visiting Service Volunteer

The Visitor Service is just one of the various services operated by Age Concern Wellington Region to provide companionship to older people who experience loneliness and not only like a visit from a friendly volunteer but also enjoy the prospect of the weekly visit.

Eva Dugaro is one of many community-minded people who provide this service. She featured in our Spring 2021 issue of the Seniority magazine as a person who does everything and a little bit more.

She visits Betty at her rest home accommodation on a weekly basis, to have a chat, catch up on the news and enliven her day. On a recent occasion during the school holidays her kids went along as well, much to the Betty’s delight.

To find out more about organising to have a visitor, or to volunteer to be a visitor go to Accredited Visitor Service | Age Concern Wellington (acwellington.org.nz) or call 04 499 6646
