About this opportunity

The Boroondara Volunteer Resource Centre is advertising this role on behalf of mecwacare.

Ray would love a weekly or fortnightly visit by someone who would be willing to have a coffee and a chat. He likes country music with Dolly Parton and John Denver being his favourites. He is a Carlton supporter but also likes rugby and deep sea fishing. He owned a boxer named Sharp.

mecwacare is excited to be participating in 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.

If you can spare 1 hour fortnightly and want to give back to your local community, we would love to hear from you.

Please register and our Volunteer Coordinator Fiona Feenaghty will be in touch to answer any questions you may have.
