Logan Area Committee On The Ageing Inc (Lacota)
Logan Community Visitors Scheme (LCVS) is supported by the Australian Federal Government and the Department of Health and matches volunteers (community visitors) with older people in nursing homes who are or may be at risk of being socially isolated or disconnected.
Thousands of elderly Australians living in homes are enduring isolation, sadness and depression. A couple of hours of your time can greatly contribute to an older person’s happiness, help them feel connected and fulfilled. A small investment from you makes a world of difference to them.
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
LCVS takes great care in matching our community visitors to an older person. We will work with you to find a convenient home for you to visit, and we can also match you with someone who has similar interests, cultural backgrounds and specific languages if required
Applicants must be over 18yrs of age or will need a parent/guardian to visit with them.
* May be arranged by the organisation. Details will be provided after you express your interest.
