This program has been set up on the North Shore and in the Eastern Suburbs to connect local Jewish volunteers with older members of our community.
The volunteers provide social support to clients who are living at home and may be socially isolated.This support is usually by way of regular one-on–one activities which may include.
- Home visiting
- Transport to appointments
- Help with correspondence
- Playing games eg chess or scrabble
- Going to a movie
The program is operated from JewishCare’s North Shore office and as with all JewishCare programs police checks and other relevant checks are carried out on all volunteers.
