What's involved with volunteering at RSL LifeCare?
Our volunteers continue to contribute remotely during COVID. They're writing letters, creating artwork, sending cards, making phone calls, and even doing zoom performances. They relieve social isolation, enhance wellbeing and create a sense of community for all our residents.
At RSL LifeCare, we believe that volunteering needs to be flexible fit in with your lifestyle. With hundreds of residents across our thirty-three communities, we can connect you with an RSL LifeCare community closest to you.
Share your skills
Perhaps you have a special talent or skill that you can share with residents? We’d be happy to explore opportunities with you.
Give your time
At our aged care homes, often the most important thing to give is your time. A smiling face and friendly conversation with our residents can go a long way.
Choose the time you can give our residents within volunteer visiting hours.
With the impact of COVID-19 lockdowns, we’ve set up a way that you can support our residents virtually. Through our Grandfriends page, volunteers of all ages can send a letter, drawing, and messages of support to our residents.
