Seniors & Aged Care Regular - more than 6 months Across: Box Hill VIC, Doncaster VIC, Donvale VIC, Templestowe VIC

About this opportunity

Sia would greatly benefit from someone who would be happy to chat over a cup of tea/coffee. She is from Greek and would love to be able to converse in her native language however just as happy to speak English. Other interests include playing cards, gardening and cooking. Our recipient is part of the Aged Care Volunteer Visitors Scheme (ACVVS) which supports isolated and lonely people who are receiving aged care services in an aged care home or through a home care package.

The program encourages volunteers to provide friendship and companionship to older people on a weekly or fortnightly basis.
