Community Visitor Volunteer - Bellevue Heights

Community Visitors Scheme (Southern Volunteering)
Logo for Community Visitors Scheme (Southern Volunteering)

Older people living in Aged Care Facilities can sometimes feel lonely and socially isolated. The Community Visitors Scheme is a federal initiative aimed to improve the lives of older people by strengthening their connection with their local community.

Volunteering as a community visitor is a very rewarding experience. By becoming friends with an older person, you can make a huge difference to their lives as well as your own.

Visits can include anything from sharing a cup of tea, going for a walk around the facility, playing a board game, reading together, listening to music, participating in activities, or simply just having a chat.

CVS visitors meet with residents a minimum of once a fortnight (with many visiting on a more regular basis).

All volunteers are trained and supported by a CVS Coordinator. This person will assist you to obtain a police check, match you with a resident, resolve any issues, provide guidance and resources, and check-in regularly.
