In tune with residents’ needs
AS a volunteer with Bethanie, one of WA’s most recognised not-for-profit aged care and retirement living providers, you become part of the Bethanie team.
The Bethanie volunteering program is flexible and Bethanie values and welcomes volunteers to share their time, interest and skills with its valued customers.
The program will work with your availability, whether it is assisting with activities on a regular or occasional basis.
“With more than 4000 West Australians in our care, we simply couldn’t operate without our 550odd volunteers who we treat as part of our team,” chief executive Chris How said.
“Your goodwill will have a meaningful and positive impact on our customers by reducing isolation and increasing socialisation, offering services that would otherwise be unavailable and promoting a healthy community.
“Whether it’s through social interaction with a resident, transporting customers, running a group like Scrabble or craft, participating in games, playing music or helping with the dishes, every little bit makes such a big difference to help brighten the day of our customers.”
Bethanie will be honouring their amazing volunteers during National Volunteer Week, an annual event to focus national attention on the impact and power of volunteerism, service and leadership, from May 20 to 26.
