Volunteer Position of the Week
Be the difference – be a Companion
Are you a caring, compassionate, empathetic person?
This week we are focusing on a specialised position for big-hearted volunteers. We have a young 20 year old man who is in need of social interaction with other young people. He currently lives in an Aged Care facility in Mandurah and, like any young man, would very much benefit from companionship. For this position a caring and intelligent approach to a disabled person is essential, as is a willingness to be part of a team. The ability to follow direction from staff is also an essential skill component. By being his visiting companion you will be able to give him a change of scenery by going out on walks, maybe listening to music or watching a movie. We are ideally looking for young caring, compassionate male volunteers. You could really make a wonderful difference in this young man’s life!
