Aged Care Volunteer Visitor

Seniors & Aged Care Regular - more than 6 months Across: Bundoora VIC, Epping VIC, Greensborough VIC, Lalor VIC, Mernda VIC, Mill Park VIC, South Morang VIC

About this opportunity

Our volunteer visitors are empathetic, kind and come from all walks of life; they find ways to connect and show genuine appreciation for the happiness of others. They play a vital role in the life of an older person through ongoing friendship.

There are people being referred to our service every day, and more than ever, we need kind-hearted volunteers like you to join our team.

We have seen many wonderful friendships formed through:

  • Sharing stories
  • Helping with a hobby, interest or activity
  • Exploring the local park or shopping centre together
  • Listening to music
  • Playing a board game

Making a new friend can change the life of an older person experiencing loneliness and isolation. It can improve physical, mental and emotional health.
