Our dedicated volunteers visit residents who live in aged care homes. They offer support to people who are socially isolated and whose quality of life would be improved by friendship and companionship.
From English speaking to multicultural, Diversicare has volunteers that cater for all languages and in turn specifically support socially isolated people from the same cultural and language backgrounds.
The visits are relaxed and social in nature. The recipient and their visitor chat together, share a cup of tea or take a walk around the garden.
Regular visits by volunteers enhance the quality of life of people by providing them with company and friendship.
Our visitors aim to establish a one-to-one relationship with recipients through culturally and linguistically appropriate contact and reconnecting them, where possible, with their community. They may read ethnic newspapers to the recipient or write letters to overseas or interstate family and friends.
Currently Diversicare has volunteers from a wide cross-cultural background including Australian, Russian, Croatian, German, Cantonese, Polish, Korean, Vietnamese, Spanish and Danish.
