We're looking for a female volunteer to catch up with an elderly gentleman for a chat and laugh over a cup of coffee.
Isolation and loneliness are two of the biggest problems facing individuals and communities, especially in our ageing population. Research shows that people who maintain social relationships live longer, healthier and more fulfilled lives. We need you to share your interests, your enthusiasm and your life with someone who may just need a friendly face and ear. As little as half an hour a week can make a significant difference to someone’s life.
The Community Visitors’ Scheme (CVS) is a federally funded program, established to promote links between elderly people living in their own homes or within aged care residences and friendly volunteer visitors.
