Volunteering with HammondCare At Home is one way you can give something back to the aged or frail in our society. Not only does volunteering have an impact on the person you spend time with, but you'll learn a lot and meet new people.
We are looking for enthusiastic and caring individuals in the Newcastle area, who can sit and have a chat, reminisce and talk about topics of interest with an elderly lady or gentleman. You may want to spend some time in the garden, play cards, listen to music or do some arts and craft activities.
If you have one hour each week (Monday to Friday) and you'd like to improve an older person's life by providing companionship, we would love to hear from you. You'll receive training, including first aid training, as well as the ongoing support from our Volunteer Coordinator.
Successful applicants will need to complete a criminal record check and provide proof of their flu vaccination - or be willing to have the vaccination prior to the start of your volunteering journey.
When you submit your enquiry, can you please include a statement on why you're interesting in volunteering.
