About this opportunity
This volunteer opportunity will help residents live life in all its fullness by engaging residents in activities and/or presentations. The social interaction, mental stimulation and physical activity that stems from these activities is a valuable part of our resident’s day and the care provided. From arts and crafts to nail care to playing games to singing or simply enjoying a cup of tea with a resident; there is no limit to the unrealised opportunities to contribute using your own personal interests and hobbies. We welcome volunteers to share, whatever your skills, passions and availability may be, with our residents to help make their day.
Located on the Tablelands, we are very homely, nestled into the rural setting. The smiles of our residents and their contagious laughter will put a smile on your face.
