JOB DESCRIPTION

About us

For 50 years, Southern Cross Care has been providing quality aged care and retirement living services to our community. We live and breathe our compassionate, capable, collaborative and creative values, and we want people who share these values to join our team.

Bellevue Court offers high quality residential care services, and embraces a healthy ageing philosophy with a focus on optimising quality of life for all residents.

About the role

Right now we’re looking for volunteers with a love of gardening to assist residents in our gardens in the mornings (days negotiable).

Research has shown that access to a garden can improve attention, relaxation and self-esteem. Positive memories of one’s past can be stimulated by being exposed to the sights and smells of nature such as plants, flowers, birds, water and insects. Spending time wandering through a garden, tending to plants or simply admiring a flower requires effortless attention, providing relief from physically and emotionally draining experiences, and an opportunity to recharge.

This volunteer position would best suit those with a passion for active ageing, clear communication skills, patience and empathy.

All volunteers require a current National Police Certificate for the Purpose of Aged Care and evidence of the annual influenza vaccination.

If you are looking for a rewarding voluntary opportunity to help people live a better life, we would love to hear from you.
