Points of View: Mandy Wilson - My Life My Way
Mandy Wilson is the Team Leader with Age NI's innovative programme, My Life My Way, which is supported by the Big Lottery Fund's Reaching Out: Connecting Older People programme, and delivered in the Belfast and Northern Health and Social Care Trust areas.
My Life My Way volunteers provide ongoing support to help empower people to make life choices, build confidence and link them into support networks.
All volunteers are provided with appropriate training to support their role: confidentiality; record-keeping; dealing with vulnerable adults, professional boundaries reminiscence, life-story training and building dementia friendly communities.
Our project matches older people with volunteers who can help them make little changes that often make a huge difference in their lives.
