HACC PYP (Home and Community Care Program for Younger People) is a service aimed at supporting people to stay active, connected and independent in their home and community. Bendigo Health delivers a range of services under this program including; home care, personal care, respite, community nursing and allied health services. We also run social, fitness and walking support groups in the community for these consumers.
Bendigo Health Volunteers will assist with the delivery of our social, fitness and walking groups. This includes administration, setting up, registrations and fostering social connections between consumers.
We are also looking to offer Volunteer social support to consumers that are particularly isolated. Social support is best described as the development of affirming relationships which encourage people to have a go. We need volunteers who can assist our HACC PYP community members to improve their social connectedness, emotional wellbeing, stay active, healthy and maintain or rebuild their confidence.
This may look like 1:1 social support in the community, café style support models, assistance to attend community activities, or just having a chat on the telephone.
Please contact the Volunteer Support Program Coordinator at Bendigo Health Community Care Services, Jodi Moresi.
