Visiting an older person who is socially isolated or feeling lonely gives them the opportunity to connect to their community and elevates the feeling of loneliness. We visit either in an aged care facility or their own home under the Community Visitors Scheme. Matching you with an older person in your local area allows you to share what is happening in their community
