Community Visitor Volunteer (50+)

Sacred Heart Mission Inc
Logo for Sacred Heart Mission Inc

Sacred Heart Mission (SHM) is a local Melbourne charity focused on elevating disadvantage, social exclusion, and homelessness. Volunteering in our own or partner aged care residential facilities is a wonderful and engaging experience that directly supports these goals and values.

Many residents have histories of experiencing homelessness or disadvantage, many with a range of complex needs, resulting from negative life experiences including the effects of poverty, exposure to trauma and social isolation.

Responsibilities

  • Regularly visit a resident (that you are matched with) in an Aged Care Facility in one of the above listed suburbs

  • Engage the resident in hobbies and activities, which can range from reading the newspaper together to making music or playing cards

  • Due to the isolation and age of some of the residents their mental capacity can be quite varied. However, we try to match people with common or similar interests
