Greek Speaking Aged Care Visitor

Community Services Regular - more than 6 months Rosebud VIC

About this opportunity

MS Plus is funded to provide a volunteer visiting program – the Aged Care Volunteer Visitors Scheme (ACVVS). Volunteer visitors share stories, go for a stroll or have a cuppa, listen to music or play a board game. Our volunteers play a vital role in the life of a person living in an aged care home or their own home through ongoing friendship.

We have a delightful gentleman who would benefit from your friendship. He enjoys strolls in the wheelchair, watering the raised garden bed, chatting about family and his former Fruit & Vegetable Shop.

You need to be warm, caring, reliable and be willing to commit to weekly visits, or at least fortnightly visits, for a minimum of 12 months/ongoing.

Good Greek communication skills are required for this recipient, however volunteers with other languages willing to be matched to the same language are very welcome to enquire.

MS believes in a person-to-person approach and aspire to match you with someone local with shared interests and hobbies.

We look forward to hearing from you.

MS Plus is a child safe organisation with a Child Safety and Wellbeing Policy.
