We know it’s important to stay socially connected with family, friends and community groups.
Our Residential Aged Care Residence, Costa House, delivers a range of services to meet residents’ health and lifestyle needs while providing opportunities for choice and independence. We are proud to host over 100 volunteers across varied roles that assist staff to deliver personalised care and support on a daily basis.
Our Volunteer Nail Care Assistants assists the Leisure & Lifestyle Coordinator, or their delegate, to provide nail care to our residents.
As you visit and spend time with our residential aged care home residents, you will be pampering them by providing a gentle hand massage and nail care, such as painting residents nails their preferred colour (no cutting).
This service enables the recipients to enjoy the benefits of social contact and have a relaxing moment. The service is highly enjoyed by our residents as it assists to alleviate their loneliness, while at the same time boosting their self-esteem.
The Essentials: Volunteers must be patient, empathetic and able to interact and communicate well with older people, along with possessing a keen sense of humour. Be handy with a bottle of nail polish. Follow procedures as requested. Be reliable and consistent in attendance. Provide cheerful and efficient service.
