Logo for Catholic Healthcare

As part of the federally funded Aged Care Volunteer Visitors Scheme; a compassionate, caring and friendly volunteer is needed to visit and provide social support with an elderly blind resident in an aged care facility in the Penrith area.

It is purely about social interaction, connection and conversation so as to provide some joy and pleasure in the life of this resident. A commitment of at least 1 hour a fortnight is needed on an ongoing basis so a rapport and trust can be developed between the volunteer and the resident.

The role is very flexible and no set time or day is needed, as long as a fortnightly visit can be met. Individuals who are willing to give a little bit of their time in conversation, who are reliable, patient and compassionate, and have a positive attitude for life are encouraged to apply.
