South West Do Care provides a unique support service to the over 65s in our communities of Colac and Apollo Bay. We co-ordinate Volunteers to visit Clients either at home or in an Aged Care Facility: –
* Home Visiting
We match each Volunteer with a Client and organise one-to-one visits in their own home purely on a friendship basis.
* Aged Care Facility Visiting
We match each Volunteer Visitor with a Resident and organise one-to-one visits purely on a friendship basis.
Time spent with the client may include sharing interests such as family, gardening, sport, books or the news, while other volunteers may take their clients for a walk, go for a drive or go out for coffee. The activities will depend on the interests and capacity of the client.
