About this opportunity
Share your language (Turkish) and companionship during fortnightly visits to an isolated elderly Turkish lady living in her own home in Elsternwick.
A female volunteer fluent in Turkish is requested for this role.
Visits may be spent talking or sharing in a simple leisure activity together. Your regular visits can make a real and positive difference in the life of this resident - reducing social isolation and improving well-being.
We ask volunteers to commit to minimum fortnightly visits for at least 12 months, however this is an ongoing role & we hope to support your friendship for as long as possible.
Volunteers receive training, orientation, ongoing support, travel reimbursement and quarterly invitations to meetings together with other visiting volunteers.
To find out more please 'express interest' below and we will phone you.
