A visit might include legacy work, sharing histories, talking of gardening, or sitting quietly. 
Visits usually take place once a week for about 1-2 hours in the client’s home. At times the volunteer may provide respite for the caregiver. Dependent on the client’s ability may take the client out for a walk or a drive as well.
