Volunteer - Healthy Ageing Assistants
Sandpiper Lodge Residential Care, 35 Washington Street, Goolwa SA 5214

 

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.

 

Right now we’re looking for Healthy Ageing Assistants to join our team at Sandpiper Lodge Residential Care home.

 

Sandpiper Lodge offers high quality residential care services, and embraces a healthy ageing philosophy, with resident’s quality of life measured using a World Health Organization assessment tool.

 

About the role

 

We are looking for volunteers to support our Wellness & Lifestyle team throughout the week; 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.
