Spend time with the socially isolated

Seniors Long Term Sydney, NSW

About this opportunity

HammondCare At Home are looking for volunteers to visit lonely or socially isolated people in their home every week. Our aim is to match you with someone in your own area for regular on-going visits, ideally you'll live within 20 minutes of Bathurst, Newcastle, Hammondville, Orange, Lithgow - or in the Central Coast, Illawarra South West Sydney and South East Sydney regions.

We are looking for enthusiastic and caring individuals who can sit and have a chat, reminisce and talk about topics of interest. You may want to spend some time in the garden, play cards, listen to music or do some arts and craft activities.

Volunteer with passion and purpose.
