Volunteers

At Menarock Life, we believe aged care volunteers make significant contribution to our residents. Volunteers are a welcomed addition to each residence to complement our existing services.

The only skill our volunteers require is to provide companionship. The ability to talk to people. Whether it is an outing on a bus, reading a book, gardening, arts/ craft or simply friendship. Volunteer involvement is valued and rewarding.

To register your interest in volunteering with Menarock Life, contact the relevant residence.

Volunteer Program

Menarock Life prides itself on providing the highest quality care to our residents. We require highly dedicated people to assist us in our pursuit providing high quality care. Those dedicated people can include the employees of Menarock Life and volunteers.

Menarock Life is expanding its Volunteer Program

Menarock Life’s philosophy is to “Care” for the frail residents of our community. We do this through encouragement, kindness and compassion. We respect our residents and uphold their dignity, privacy and security. Whilst conducting the administration and provision of services in the highest professional manner. By expanding our volunteer program we are able to further enhance our mission and philosophy.

 

What is in it for aged care volunteers?

Age can bring its own problems, including reduced mobility owing to ill health or frailty. This means that older people can feel isolated. Aged care volunteers who visit with our residents help to ensure they stay in touch with the rest of the community. Seeing the difference this can make in a residents day is a very rewarding experience for volunteers.

 

Police Checks

If volunteers are deemed suitable for our program, a police check is required.
Menarock Life will pay for the police check before volunteers can commence with us.

 

Orientation Process

  • Volunteer makes contact with Menarock by emailing volunteer@menarock.com.au and completes an application to volunteer;
  • Volunteer Coordinator (Group Manager Administration) interviews the volunteer and completes required documentation.  If appropriate, a police check is undertaken;
  • Upon receiving the police check, the volunteer is allocated to a residence and receives a volunteer handbook;
  • Introductions to the Lifestyle Coordinator and DON is made at the residence; and
  • The Lifestyle Coordinator determines the volunteers activity schedule. Completes the orientation with the volunteer and supervises their work.
