Do you speak Malaysian Tamil?

Seniors & Aged Care Regular - more than 6 months Eaton WA

About this opportunity

We have a number of Malaysian Tamil speaking residents who would benefit with having a companion to converse with in their own language.

Visits can be spent doing something both you and the residents enjoy whether that be playing a game, listening to music, chatting, reminiscing or going for a walk.

No special skills are needed except for a friendly and caring nature and good listening and communication skills. Our friendly team will be there to guide and support you.

As little as half an hour a week can make a significant difference to someone’s life.

If you enjoy having a chat and have some time to share this role could be for you!
