Roger- Lifelines

Roger, 67, RSVP Lifelines volunteer

“I started volunteering after I became a widower as I needed to learn to look after myself. I had never lived alone before my wife passed away. Living alone was a big shock initially, but volunteering has helped my well-being a lot. I have been doing cooking classes. I’ve seen that the company and learning processes helps people. The Tea Dances also help people, who are unable to dance anymore, enjoy music. Everyone seems to enjoy and appreciate it. Being part of Lifeline’s projects offers me companionship and the chance to be with people. That is definitely the most enjoyable thing.”
