As a Community Visitor you will visit this gentleman at the Aged Care home in the Wynnum Manly area. Regular fortnightly visits provide the resident with valuable interaction and friendship. During your visits you can play Chess together and get to know each other through having a chat.
Our gentleman enjoys staying up to date on current affairs. In his earlier days he was a farmer and had a strong interest in sailing.
Through this regular one-to-one visiting great friendships can be formed. These visits from a Community Visitor can help to improve the quality of life of the older person and help them to feel less socially isolated.
Volunteering as a Community Visitor can be a very rewarding experience. By becoming a friend to an older person, you can make a positive difference to their lives as well as your own.
- An important note - A requirement issued by the Federal Government in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, is that ALL visitors to aged care facilities in Australia, from 31st May 2021, must have a current Flu Vaccination with evidence to be provided to Community Visitors Scheme (wynnum) and the aged care facility.
