As a volunteer you can:

  • Visiting residents & patients 1 on 1

  • Take part in the many group activities & outings 

  • Provide support to people & their families in the palliative care program

  • Administration assistance

 

It can be as simple as having a chat with a resident, taking them for a stroll around the gardens, read a book or the local papers, listening to music or enjoying a cup of tea together.

What skills do you need?
  • You need to enjoy spending time talking and listening to others.

  • You need to be part of a team.

  • You need to undertake a police check and training with our Volunteer Coordinator.

  • Importantly, you need patience, compassion and a great sense of humor.

  • You need to commit a few hours a week and be reliable.

How do you become a volunteer?

Help brighten someone's day. Knowing that someone is coming to visit is so important to patients and lonely residents and can be thoroughly rewarding for you too.
