What is a Visiting Service?
Older or sick people go out less often. If they have no relatives or friends, these people are often alone. That is why Volkshilfe employees visit these people.
What does the Visiting Service do?
The employees ask what they can do for the people.
This can be, for example:
- Talking with them
- Reading from newspapers or books
- Playing cards
- Going for walks
- Going shopping
- Going with them to the doctor
The visiting service is currently only available in Steyr.
