The Community Visitors Scheme
The Community Visitors Scheme (CVS) is an Australian Government initiative funded through the Department of Health and operates for us under the auspice(s) of St Elizabeth’s Mothers Union inc.
CVS Auspices are funded to:
- Support visitor-residents relationships in residential aged care homes
- Recruit, train and support volunteer community visitors
- Match volunteers to care recipients
Do you have some time to spare once a fortnight (or even weekly?)
Would you like to make a difference to the life of a lonely resident?
Volunteers make regular visits to socially and or culturally isolated recipients of Australian Government subsidised aged care services. The CVS matches aged care recipients with volunteer visitors, who make one-on-one visits in aged care homes.
Many residents have no friends or family members to visit them.
Visitors do not need to be attending a church.
Please contact us for further information.
