Friendly visiting, VON style
   Just a reminder to all of you visiting vol-
unteers, that your telephone calls can count
for stats as well as visits. The rule of
thumb is that as long as visiting is the
intention of the call; it counts. Any tele-
phone calls 15 minutes in length or more
count as a visit. If you or the person you
visit is ill, or unable to make a visit, con-
sider this as an alternative.
   Please remember to report your statistics
to your Coordinator at the end of each
month. Number of visits with your client
and the number of hours spent are impor-
tant to report before the end of the month
as we need to give these numbers to the
Ministry of Health.
  The Ministry of Heath gives us the fund-
ing so we can provide the volunteer visit-
ing program throughout branch. Without
accurate statistics, our funding could be at
risk.
                                               Volunteer Teresa Grochowska and Ruth Clark are all smiles as they visit.
   If you know of someone who would ben-
efit from having a volunteer visitor, please let us know.
