Volunteers wanted for high care facility
Peninsula Village is seeking local community members to volunteer at its high care facility, Jack Aldous House, in Umina.
The organisation is putting a call out for willing and suitable volunteers to assist at meal times at the residential aged care facility for approximately one to two hours at a time, for one to two days a week.
"We highly value our hardworking team of volunteers who help enhance the quality of life for our residents and provide a vital service to our community," said the aged care provider's chief executive, Mr Shane Neaves.
"Peninsula Villages is delighted to have a loyal and dedicated team of almost 100 volunteers who assist with everything from day-to-day activities for our residents, to assisting with the village bus, our meal delivery service, care support, resident leisure and engagement, events and administration.
"We are now seeking additional volunteers to assist our residents in our high care facility, Jack Aldous House, specifically at lunch times to assist with meal support," Mr Neaves said.
Suitable volunteers for this role would be provided with volunteer training, including understanding correct, safe and appropriate way to assist our residents at meal times and training about the organisation's values.
All applications deemed suitable will have various legislative checks undertaken before commencement.
