Feros Care's Virtual Seniors Centre (VSC) is one of our most innovative and powerful programs which assists our seniors to connect, and experience life outside their home, reducing their isolation and experiencing the outside world.
VSC additionally inspires seniors who are more isolated to connect to one another and experience activities remotely.
Seniors simply need a computer or notebook device, and the internet, and Feros will open up a whole new world, and all from the comfort of their own home.
Some examples of activities that the virtual centre offers our seniors are;
**Book clubs, special interest groups, chat clubs **Seated yoga, tai chi, movement to music and dance **Exploring the latest healthy living information and advice **Art and craft workshops **Games and entertainment **Activities to challenge and stimulate the mind **Support groups e.g. for carers **Discussions with guest speakers and lots of surprise events **Virtual attendance at free community events
We would love to match volunteers who are interested in technology, those who can look outside the box at the amazing opportunities our VSC can offer to seniors.
Volunteers may offer one of the following skills to share and support the programs success; ** IT/ Tech Support- Helping seniors in their homes or on the phone to connect and learn how to access the centre, as well as managing access issues help. ** Facilitators (Hosts)-Developing or sharing a skill virtually- host a class, or weekly session in e.g. exercise, craft, conversation circle ** Moderating sessions- running studio based sessions at the high tech studio based in Coolangatta (great for media experience) **Remote Streaming- Host a virtual tour of a free community event e.g. Street Carnivals, expos, beach ** Administration and coordination support- Assist the team in the ongoing coordination of the VSC, and in promoting this free opportunity to seniors in our community.
The VSC is easy to access, and all training will be provided to get you going. So come on down and join our amazing virtual world!
