Community Visitor - Meridan Plains 4551

Community Services Regular - more than 6 months Meridan Plains QLD

About this opportunity

We require someone who would enjoy visiting an elderly female living in her own home within a retirement village for a 1:1 social chat and cuppa. Visit for 1 hour per fortnight or week with times and days arranged to suit yourself and the care recipient. This particular position is at Meridan Plains, Sunshine Coast. The care recipient used to love craft, quilting, knitting and has travelled lots. She would love a volunteer visitor to walk with her out to the pool for a coffee and chat.

Are you someone who has a little spare time to give? Do you like sharing a story or just want to give back to community to assist in "making people's lives better?"

If this sounds like you, please apply for this rewarding volunteer role.
