Community Visitor Scheme
A Community Visitor is a volunteer who sets aside time, at least once a fortnight, to visit and befriend a resident of an aged care facility. By befriending an older person you have the chance to make a positive difference to their life – and to your own. The community visitor will:
- Be a companion, confidant and friend to an older person.
- Help the resident maintain links with the wider community.
- Have sufficient time to visit once a fortnight.
If you would like to become a Community Visitor, the CVS Coordinator will arrange an interview, ask you to complete the appropriate forms and documentation, and apply for a National Police Check on your behalf.
