Ageing Well Network - Volunteers for Survey

Posted: 31/8/2011


We are seeking volunteers over the age of 55 years to assist us
with this study.
The role of the volunteer will be to call to homes of a random
selection of older people and seek their views by means of
this questionnaire.
 Support for the volunteer will be provided and out of pocket
 expenses of 10 euro per completed questionnaire will be paid.
Each volunteer will be asked to conduct 25 interviews and may
 if available agree to complete more. Reference checks will be
carried out on volunteers. 
Training of volunteers will take place on Tuesday 11th October.
The study will commence on the 12th October and is expected
 to be completed by November 3rd. Each volunteer arranges
their own schedule to complete their area within that timeframe.
A follow up meeting with volunteers will be held on Tuesday
November 22nd.
