Join VollieCare and Become a Beacon of Joy for Older Adults! 🌟

Are you passionate about making a difference in the lives of others?

Do you have a warm heart and a listening ear? If so, we want YOU to join our team of incredible volunteers at VollieCare!

We're on a mission to bring smiles and support to older adults facing dementia, delirium, or simply in need of companionship during their hospital stay.

At VollieCare, we believe that every individual deserves dignity, respect, and a high quality of life, regardless of age or health condition. That's where you come in!

As a volunteer, you'll be a ray of sunshine for our patients and their families, offering emotional support, engaging conversations, and a helping hand with day-to-day activities. From chatting about current events to playing games and enjoying music together, your presence will brighten their days and make a real difference in their journey towards wellness.

Here's a glimpse of what you'll be doing:

  • Engaging patients in uplifting conversations about their surroundings and interests.
  • Providing support for enjoyable activities like games, puzzles, music, and art.
  • Offering comfort and companionship to both patients and their loved ones.
  • Helping out with various tasks to support our amazing staff and create a welcoming environment for all.

But wait, there's more! We've got a treasure trove of activity ideas to spark joy and creativity during your volunteer sessions:

  • Reading the latest headlines from the newspaper.
  • Playing cards, games, and brain-teasing puzzles together.
  • Grooving to some tunes and sharing musical memories.
  • Sharing stories, memories, and laughter over a cup of tea.
  • Unleashing your inner artist with colouring or painting sessions.

So, what are you waiting for? Join VollieCare today and be part of a community dedicated to spreading kindness, compassion, and happiness to older adults in need.

Your time and caring heart can truly make a world of difference!
