Job no: 504824 Work type: Volunteer in Australia Location: Victoria
As a Community Visitors Scheme (CVS) volunteer you have the opportunity to brighten someone's life. CVS volunteers are matched with an older person who lives in aged care or at home and experiences social isolation. Through your one-to-one visits, they will benefit from your companionship and friendship.
Visits must occur at least once per fortnight and are relaxed with a social nature. You might chat together, reminisce, listen to music, read the newspaper or play card games.
As a CVS Volunteer, you will need to be a good listener and communicator and will enjoy spending time with older people. We are looking for a volunteer who is over 18 years of age and willing to commit at least 1 hour per fortnight to visit an elderly gentleman in Preston. You will also be willing to maintain monthly contact with your Red Cross coordinator.
All volunteers will receive on-going support and guidance from Red Cross Program Officers in addition to training, information and resources. This is a rewarding opportunity to brighten the life of someone in your community.
