Summary

A deaf gentleman with dementia needs a companion while travelling by taxi.

Detailed description

FLEXIBLE HOURS


A deaf gentleman with dementia travels between his home in Cheltenham and GDA by taxi a lot. Due to his condition he cannot travel unaccompanied, so we need a regular volunteer who can keep him company and ensure that he arrives at his destination safely.


Some signing skill is recommended, but not mandatory.


This volunteer can stay with the gentleman for the day or they can only come when it's time to catch a taxi.
