About this opportunity

Lonely older lady Dorothea would love a friend to chat with. Originally from Germany, she lives in Ferntree Gully and is feeling socially isolated. It would be great to find a volunteer to visit with her once a fortnight.

The Aged Care Volunteer Visitors Scheme (ACVVS) 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.

If you would like to join this meaningful and important program, please apply online. For questions, please contact Jackie on 0475 669 017.
