Wendy is a volunteer at Knightwood Court, where she spends a lot of time helping the residents with their refreshments.
Wendy trained as a garden designer at Sparsholt and has enjoyed sharing this interest with residents, helping some with the garden areas outside their rooms.
“I’m very aware of the benefit of volunteers in care homes. My father was in a home and I saw first hand what a difference volunteers can make. We can be a listening ear – someone not in uniform that residents feel they can chat to.
I enjoy chatting and building relationships with the residents and naturally, some have become friends.”
