About the role

 

Right now we’re looking for warm and friendly volunteers to support residents living in 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 during the day (10am-3pm) and/or in the evening (6pm-8pm) to spend with the residents providing one on one support or small group activities (e.g. art & craft, play-doh, doll therapy and sing along etc.) with the aim of building a mutually rewarding relationship.

 

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.
