The Volunteer Program is a social support program for Flexi Care Inc.’s clients that complements Flexi Care Inc.’s services and is funded by Commonwealth Home Support.

 

Who are our volunteers?

Volunteers come from diverse backgrounds and bring a range of skills to enhance overall client experience. They are local men and women over 18 years of age with a willingness to contribute an hour or two weekly, fortnightly or monthly to enhance the lives of the elderly and people with a disability.

 

Why volunteer?

Volunteers are people who want to make a valued contribution to their local community.

At Flexi Care Inc., volunteers:

  • achieve a sense of self satisfaction,
  • gain useful experience to support future study or employment,
  • form new friendships with people in their area,
  • become part of the Flexi Care Inc. team.

 

Contributing one or two hours per week, fortnight or month, is all that is needed.

 

How can volunteers assist?

Volunteers assist clients and Flexi Care Inc. staff by:

  • sharing companionship, conversation and interests;
  • helping with local outings and social events;
  • transporting to and from appointments – e.g. doctors, podiatry etc;
  • administrative assistance in the office – like mail outs, laminating, collating and photocopying; or
  • serving on the management committee.
