Certificate lll in Aged Care, Individual Support and/or Disability preferred but not essential.
We encourage our volunteers to share their time or an activity that they love doing. It’s these little moments of companionship that often lead to beautiful friendships and lasting memories. Volunteering at one of our stunning aged care residences is a great way to stay social, learn and become part of your community. It requires patience and understanding with skills and experience in lifestyle activities for the elderly.
We would love to have some Volunteers who are interested in or can speak Italian; who are musically talented eg. walk around with a guitar and play and sing to the residents; who would like to read to residents; who can chat and listen to our residents in our gardens or walk around our surrounds.
