St John Ambulance Community Care SA is seeking dedicated volunteers who are willing to support older people to connect to their community. Covid-19 restrictions have affected many older people who choose to stay at home to protect their health. As a result there is an increase in older people becoming more lonely and isolated. Some older people are now wanting help to safely access the community. If you have a car and an hour or two a week, you can make a real difference in the life of an older person who would love to connect with you. All mileage and out of pocket reimbursement costs are covered.
St John Ambulance's Community Care Program is a well-respected and trusted volunteer service that has supported older people throughout the Adelaide metropolitan area for 30 years.
Volunteers make a real and heartfelt difference in the lives of older people who have identified that they would benefit from greater social interaction in their life while remaining a valued participant in community and society. Volunteers are carefully matched with the older person they visit to ensure the visit is mutually enjoyable, meaningful and rewarding.
Please note: During Covid-19 restrictions, each client is assessed for home visiting suitability in line with the latest Covid-19 advice from SA Health. St John provides all necessary Covid-19 protection measures for volunteers to practice as an added safeguard, and upholds all of its required health and funding obligations.
