We're guided by our values of care, communication, creativity and teamwork, and we want people who share these values to join our team.
Right now we’re looking for an Active Ageing Volunteer to join our Oakfield Lodge Residential Care team.
Oakfield Lodge offers high quality residential care services, and embraces a healthy ageing philosophy, with resident’s quality of life measured using a World Health Organization assessment tool.
About the role
If you are interested in promoting physical activity and improving the quality of life for older people, our fitness coordinators can give you the resources and expertise required to become an Active Ageing Volunteer.
We are looking for volunteers to support residents to be physically active and improve their quality of life.
The role will support people to move to and from the dining room, participate in walking groups, assist lifestyle teams with fitness activities and more.
The days and times of this volunteer position are negotiable.
This position would best suit those with clear communication skills, a passion for healthy ageing, patience and empathy.
