Driving clients for Baptcare will involve collecting elderly residents from their home at our residential Aged Care Home, Strathalan in Macleod.
Strathalan has played an important part of the Macleod community since 1945 when it first opened. Residents are encouraged to engage with the local community through our lifestyle program – for example, through your generous gift of time residents can enjoy scenic bus outings accompanied by morning or afternoon tea.
Our strong community connection also extends to younger generations, with students from Our Lady of Mercy College and other local schools regularly volunteering and performing at Strathalan.
It is such a huge relief to residents knowing someone they can trust will collect them, take them safely to their next destination and be a source of conversation. For the family members of our residents, they too appreciate you being able to provide their loved one with independence, which they themselves cannot always provide for one reason or another.
As the driver you are able to develop friendships with those you are collecting and provide companionship to them as you travel together. We are looking to create a team of volunteer drivers. Through our team you will have opportunity to connect and share experiences with your peers, but if you have a friend, you can always apply together! We welcome group-based applications!
The role you undertake has significant impact for our residents who are deeply grateful and appreciative of the time and service you give. Baptcare honours the work of Volunteers through its Reward and Recognition Program.
Come and experience being part of an incredible team. Join our Strathalan volunteer team today!
