Do you have time each week to make a difference in the life of an older person? Our Aged Care Volunteer Visitor Scheme is about bringing joy to the life of an older person who may be lonely and socially isolated in their community. We are seeking visitors for people living in their own home or an aged care facility. We match the volunteer and resident based on mutual interest and geographical location.
There are great benefits for all involved in the program. Being able to give back to your community, a feeling of purpose and gain an understanding of aged care via ongoing training and support by professional Community Visitor Scheme staff.
You will be provided with initial orientation training, and regular network meetings that provide updated information. Ongoing support from experienced staff.
Availability will be discussed with each volunteer.
