We are looking for volunteers to become Volunteer Visitors and regularly visit with a lonely elderly people living in Aged Care homes in the Bulimba area. During your visits you can get to know each other through having a chat, or perhaps playing an easy board game or doing a word puzzle together, listening to music, reading or even taking a short stroll on the grounds.
Volunteering as a Volunteer Visitor can be a very rewarding experience. By becoming a friend to an older person, you can make a positive difference to their lives as well as your own.
Through this regular one-to-one visiting, wonderful friendships can be formed. These visits from a Volunteer Visitor can help to improve the quality of life of the older person and help them to feel less socially isolated, minimising their feelings of loneliness and depression.
