We are looking for hard-working, dedicated volunteers to join our team!
Full training and support is provided to suitable applicants.
Please note: applicants must undergo interviews and a criminal record check. Applicants must be able to give a 12-month commitment to volunteer.
Your role will provide similar support to that which would be provided by a family carer. In this way the program is also designed to support family carers when they are unable to be with their loved one.
The volunteer initially talks with the patient, relative or friends to gain an understanding of the patient’s background, family members, personal preferences and activities they enjoy.
Volunteers must attend training and we ask for at least a 12 month commitment. A criminal record check is also required.
Your role will involve supporting patients to play games such as Bingo and other activities. You will also support staff by clearing tables before lunch time and assisting patients should they need help opening lunch packages.
We are looking for people with good communication skills, patience
and empathy for elderly people within a hospital setting. Reliability
is also important.
Part of this role will also involve feeding patients once the Meal Assistance Program starts on 17th September and if you want to be involved feeding patients you will need to complete the training on 3 September.
