Care Companion - Dementia Support

St Vincent's Private Hospital Northside

Our Care Companion role is a new addition to our volunteer program where we focus on enhancing our patient care beyond their clinical care.

We have patients in our care each day experiencing Dementia / Delirium and our care companions are specialists in engaging these patients. Some patients might like to engage in activities such as cards or a puzzle and other patients might love a good chat - our ideal applicant will adapt to each patient and their needs.

With this being a new program, we have a number of shifts available: Tuesday 8.30am - 12.30pm Friday 8.30am - 12.30pm.

We are also keen to trial late evening volunteers when our patients are often most unsettled - between 4pm and 6pm, any day of the week!

Our volunteers are a friendly and social team, we have morning/ afternoon tea together each shift and enjoy a good laugh. We also pride ourselves on connecting with our patients and their families, we look for those small moments where we can really make a difference!

Help us to provide a calm and inspiring space for our patients and visitors.
