Community Visitors Scheme

CatholicCare provides this program for residents living in aged care and in their homes. The aim is to encourage regular companionship and improve the quality of life of these special individuals. With your cultural background, interests and hobbies aligned with those of a resident, the visits are sure to be stimulating for both parties.

Community Visitors Scheme is a free service to help older people maintain social connections. A matched volunteer will aim to visit for 1 hour,  once a fortnight. Visitors can be: 

  • One on one or small group visits to residential aged care homes. 
  • one on one visits to people receiving home care package

Become a CVS volunteer

Volunteering as a community visitor can be a rewarding experience. By becoming friends with an older person, you can make a positive difference to their lives as well as your own.
