This role gives you the opportunity to brighten the life of an older person by visiting them regularly at a Residential Aged Care Home, as part of the Community Visitors Scheme.

As a volunteer you will commit to visiting a resident at least once a fortnight for around 1-2 hours. Visits are spent doing an enjoyable activity such as going for a short walk, catching up for a coffee/tea, crafting, knitting, watching TV, discussing shared interests and/or culture. It is essential for this visitor to play chess or to speak Swedish (or are learning the language). When matching with a community member we try to keep in mind your interests and availability to try and ensure you both enjoy the visits as much as each other.
