Do you enjoy interacting with older members of our community? Do you have some skills or interests that would appeal to older people? HammondCare’s Social Club at Caringbah is looking for volunteers. The Social Club offers clients who are frail aged and or living with dementia a chance to spend a day socialising outside their home.
As a volunteer you would be assisting our trained staff to provide plenty of enjoyable activities such as games, arts and craft, music, exercising and outings. For some guests, the opportunity to have someone to listen and have a chat over a cuppa will be invaluable.
Ideally, you’ll be available from 10am to 2pm on either Monday or Thursday for 6 months or longer*. In this role you would bring a cheerful demeanour, patience and empathy, and a sense of fun. Your contribution will make a big difference to the quality of life of the Guests in our care. Lunch would be provided.
Volunteering as a social visitor can be a rewarding experience, both for the person you visit as well as yourself. Regular visits from volunteers can help to improve quality of life and help older people feel less isolated. Your visits will bring great joy to the clients you are matched with.
HammondCare is an independent Christian charity and we're passionate about improving the quality of life for people in need. We have a wonderful group of volunteers that partner with us to enhance the lives of the clients cared for by HammondCare.
