Liz* describes herself as artistic, quiet, friendly and caring. She enjoys reading and watching TV. In the past she enjoyed oil painting decoupage, weaving and folk art. She would like to have a fortnightly visit from a friendly, engaging calm and conservative person who has a car for trips out to do some personal shopping, or have a cuppa at a local café or restaurant.

You'll need the ability to creatively reconnect Liz with her interests and the neighborhood whilst sharing home and community-based activities. You will have a valid driver’s license and your own car to transport Liz in during visits. The skills and confidence to work independently are a must. Induction, ongoing supervision and opportunities for professional development provided.
