Volunteer - Healthy Ageing Assistants
About us For 50 years, Southern Cross Care has been providing quality aged care and retirement living services to our community. We live and breathe our compassionate, capable, collaborative and creative values, and we want people who share these values to join our team. About the role We are looking for volunteers to support our Wellness & Lifestyle team on Mondays, Tuesday and Wednesday afternoons; to undertake activities to create stimulating social environments.
This may include playing scrabble or other board games or taking on a new project. Projects include gardening, cooking, walking groups and more. You may prefer to visit up to 5 residents who are at risk of social isolation each week – to undertake an activity of the person’s choice – whether it be having a cup of tea and chat, doing a word puzzle or some gardening outdoors.
If you enjoy giving back, have great communication skills and have patience and empathy for people living with dementia then this position would suit you All volunteers require a current National Police Certificate for the Purpose of Aged Care and evidence of the annual influenza vaccination. If you are looking for a rewarding voluntary opportunity to help people be better for life we would love to hear from you..
