About this opportunity

The work can include taking residents for a walk either in a wheelchair or simply accompanying them around the beautiful open spaces and gardens of our facility. It may also involve assisting residents with their meals, one to one visits or helping our Diversional Therapist with some fun activities including art, music, craft, beading, singing, assisting residents to morning teas in the neighbouring building and special events. If you are able to help us with all or any of these activities, please let me know as soon as you are able.
