In their own words:

“Mum's WeVisitor is a perfect match and they've got similar interests. She's really on the same page and is teaching mum a whole lot of things.” - Gill (Sally's daughter) Gill
“Do it. I think it's the best thing ever. It's the highlight of my week, I love coming here so much. She makes me feel like I'm part of her family and it's just so nice to have found that here in New Zealand.” - Kerstin (WeVisitor) Kerstin
“My daughter [Gill] said, 'Have a go Mum. It'll be lovely.' I'm so pleased I did because I've met Kerstin and she's so lovely. She's been a wonderful help to me.” - Sally (Gill's 85 year old mum) Sally

Who are WeVisitors?

Every WeVisitor is personally selected based on their character and after clearing a NZ Police check, is trained with best practice skills on in-home companionship and care.

WeVisitors are carefully matched with your loved one based on mutual-shared interests, and this relationship is continually monitored to ensure the match remains suitable for both your loved one and you.

Are you a caring and engaged young person?

WeVisitors are part of a community of young people who are dedicated to ensuring older generations receive companionship and regular social contact. As a WeVisitor you'll be paid for your time, and will make new friends and learn valuable lessons from supporting somebody from a generation different than your own.
