As part of our Companion Volunteer Program, we are looking for friendly people who are passionate about making a difference in the lives of our elderly residents by spending an hour per week or fortnight visiting and forming friendships
In the role of a Companion Volunteer, you will be able to assist in ensuring residents remain actively engaged and inspired every day. Quality time shared can include having a chat, playing cards or board games, working on a hobby together or discussing the local news. You might like to take a walk, grab a cuppa or enjoy some gardening together.
The volunteering hours currently available are Monday to Friday between 9am till 3.30pm
Our aged care communities are places of warmth, smiles and hugs where residents enjoy a wonderful sense of life, fun and friendship. Join our volunteering teams and you will meet so many wonderful people, learn new skills and access other benefits, such as:
- Supply and pay for any security checks required for the position
- Access to online and face-to-face wellness advisors
- Great education opportunities
- Free Flu Vaccinations
- Exclusive shopping discounts
- Invitations to social events
- Being part of a team that really is making a difference in the lives of residents living in aged care.
All our volunteers follow a COVID-19 safe work plan and provide proof they are up to date with their COVID-19 vaccinations before they are registered in their role.
Volunteers will also be required to have a current NDIS Workers Screening Clearance and Blue Card Combined check prior to commencement. This can be applied for through Wesley Mission Queensland at no cost to you.
We look forward to hearing from you!
