Urgent! Help a lonely person living in Aged Care by being a friend - Carindale / Coorparoo

Wynnum Baptist Community Visitors Scheme
Logo for Wynnum Baptist Community Visitors Scheme

We are looking for volunteers to become Community Visitors and regularly visit with a lonely elderly people living in Aged Care homes in the Carindale and Coorparoo areas. During your visits you can get to know each other through having a chat, or perhaps playing a board game or doing a word puzzle together, listening to music, reading or even taking a short stroll on the grounds.

Volunteering as a Community 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 Community 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.
