Seniors & Aged Care Regular - more than 6 months Across: Greenbank QLD, Logan Central QLD, Loganholme QLD

About this opportunity

Share your language (Tagalog) and companionship during weekly or fortnightly visit with an isolated man.

This man enjoys going for walks and physical activity. A male or female volunteer visitor would be suitable 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 weekly or 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
