Vol­un­teers needed for aged care vis­its

Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - OPINION -

SOUTHCARE is call­ing for vol­un­teers to help out with the Com­mu­nity Vis­i­tor Scheme, which matches res­i­dents with res­i­dents in aged care fa­cil­i­ties or peo­ple who have be­come iso­lated from the com­mu­nity.

Southcare in­ter­views the res­i­dent and then ad­ver­tises on Vol­un­teer­ingWA web­site for a “friend” who has sim­i­lar in­ter­ests and can visit for about an hour each week.

It is a re­quire­ment in the aged care in­dus­try that all vol­un­teers have a cur­rent Vol­un­teers Po­lice Clearance, but Southcare will ap­ply and pay for this.

Con­tact Vol­un­teers and Com­mu­nity Ser­vices man­ager Vicki Mor­rell on 9450 6233 or vicki.m@ southcare.org.au to make an ap­point­ment to meet at their premises in Man­ning or at your home.
