Residents who are interested in supporting our elderly community and who have one or two hours available on weekdays are encouraged to get in touch with council’s Community Care team.
Double-vaccinated volunteers with their own cars are being sought to help out Monday to Friday with the Community Links and Mosman Meals services.
Community Links can fit around volunteers’ schedules and provide assistance to elderly residents by taking them to do their shopping, attend medical appointments, visit the post office, or simply by spending time having a chat at a café or in their home.
Meals volunteers can help brighten someone’s day by delivering nutritious meals to older adults in the community between 11am and 1pm. Find out more about Volunteering opportunities here or call 9978 4126 for more information.
Mosman Council’s Community Care team can also provide support for elderly community members needing help with everyday tasks or just a listening ear.
Local volunteers can help community members with grocery shopping, medical appointments, keeping active with walks, visits to the hairdresser or even social trips to see friends.
Community Care can arrange for a volunteer to visit your home or pick up and return you at the end of each activity.
Eligibility criteria applies and participants will need to be registered with My Aged Care.
