UnitingCare Wesley Bowden is looking for volunteers to visit people who live in their own home or in an aged care facility who have little contact with family or friends. If you are a good listener, love to have a chat, and would like to spread a little happiness, we would like to hear from you to discuss. Varied cultural backgrounds/languages welcome.
Volunteers will receive free training regarding the role of community visitor; communication and empathy skills; first aid; issues relating to older people such as dementia awareness, loss and grief; policies of organisation when visiting off-site.
Volunteers will be required 2 hours per week or per fortnight or more depending on volunteers availability. This role is suited to people aged 18 years and over willing to undergo a police check.
