Community Outreach

Social connection is a vital aspect of maintaining a healthy life. We understand the need to meet people in their communities.

We can connect you with groups who visit veterans and family members, especially the elderly or lonely, in their homes, hospitals, or nursing homes.

These groups provide emotional support and company to veterans and family members who need it.

We’re also able to provide information and referrals to government, health, and welfare services.

Even if you know you need some help, but you’re not sure where to begin, get in touch with us and speak to someone.

Through our connections with RSL sub-branches, we can help to provide RSL funeral tributes or visits to widows.

 

Arrange a visit at hospital or home

We facilitate regular hospital visits to see veterans and family members in need. We can also refer you to groups who can visit you in your home.

Our clients have found that this social interaction can help with making personal connections, preventing loneliness and anxiety, and improving overall welfare.

If you’d like to arrange a visit, please complete the enquiry form below or call us on (02) 8088 0388.

 

Visit a veteran in need

We facilitate visits to veterans in need at home, or in hospitals or nursing homes. However, visiting individuals cannot turn up unannounced. The veteran must request a visit.

If they would appreciate a visit, please encourage them to get in touch with us.

If they are unable to contact us on their own, you can contact us on their behalf and we can work with you to complete the necessary forms to enable use to reach out. Alternatively, we can provide guidance and appropriate referrals to other services.

 

Help for a friend of family member

If your friend or family member needs help, please ask them to get in contact with RSL DefenceCare.

If you are a family member and you’re being affected by the situation, please get in touch as we are able to help family members.

All our services are free of charge. If you’d like to speak to someone or arrange a visit, please complete the enquiry form or call us on (02) 8088 0388.

Groups that we connect veterans with include RSL NSW sub-branches, Legacy, partners groups, and carers groups.
