Aged Care Visitors - Capalaba and surrounds

Wynnum Baptist Community Visitors Scheme t/as ACVVS Wynnum

We are looking for people from a variety of backgrounds to become Volunteer Visitors and regularly visit with lonely older people living in Aged Care homes in Alexandra Hills, Capalaba, Birkdale and surrounding areas.

During your visits you can get to know the resident through having a cuppa and a chat, playing an easy board game or doing a simple activity together, listening to music, reading or perhaps taking a short stroll with the resident on the grounds of the Aged Care home. An understanding of ageing (or willingness to learn), would be beneficial for this role. Full training provided by ACVVS Wynnum.

Volunteering as a Volunteer 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.

Through this regular one-to-one visiting, wonderful friendships can be formed. These visits from a Volunteer Visitor can help to improve the quality of life of the older person and help them to feel less socially isolated, minimising their feelings of loneliness and depression.
