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

 

Right now we’re looking for warm and friendly volunteers in the Mount Barker area to support our residents within our Memory Support Unit.

 

We are looking for someone with a basic understanding of dementia and the challenges faced by older people who live with dementia.  The volunteer would have time available to spend with the residents providing one on one support or small group activities such as cooking or gardening with the aim of forming a connection and build a mutually rewarding relationship.

 

Ideally you would be available during the week, weekends and/or evenings. 

 

This volunteer position would best suit those with clear communication skills and high levels of patience and empathy for those living with dementia.

 

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 we would love to hear from you.
