Multiple Sclerosis is funded to provide a volunteer visiting program – the Community Visitors Scheme (CVS). Volunteer visitors share stories, go for a stroll or a cuppa, listen to music or play a game. Our volunteers play a vital role in the life of a person living in an aged care home or their own home through ongoing friendship.
We have Mary in Springvale, she would suite either a male or female visitor for conversations. She worked in a family clothing business, had lived in South Australia and follow Richmond AFL. Can take her for slow walks or try a quiz with her. You need to be warm, caring, reliable and be willing to commit to at least fortnightly visits for a minimum of 12 months.
Good English communication skills required however volunteers with other languages willing to be matched to same language very welcome.
