Share your language and companionship during fortnightly friendly visits to an isolated elderly Polish who is living in an aged care home in Dandenong.
A female volunteer 50 + years old is requested for this role.
This is a unique one-to-one friendly visiting role which aims to make a real and positive difference in the life of an older person by reducing loneliness and improving well-being.
You may spend visits chatting or participating in a leisure activity together. A volunteer who can enjoy company without much conversation and is willing to suggest and lead other activities such as going for a walk, board games, looking at magazines, films, craft or listening to music is needed for this social support visiting role.
We ask that you commit to regular visiting for at least 12 months.
Volunteers receive training, orientation, ongoing support and a travel allowance.
