Volunteer - Companionship
The Pines Lodge, 342 Marion Road North Plympton SA 5037

 

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.

 

The Pines 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

 

To cater for our residents who are at risk of social isolation or who just prefer one on one time rather than group activities, you'll be asked to provide companionship over a cup of coffee or tea, or to undertake an activity of the person's choice - whether it be doing a word puzzle, going for a walk or gardening outdoors.

 

Ideally, you will have availability on weekends from 10am-12pm and/or 2pm-4pm.

 

This position would best suit those with a passion for healthy ageing, clear communication skills, patience and empathy.

 

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 volunteering opportunity to help people make vital social connections, therefore enhancing their quality of life, we would love to hear from you.
