Aged Care Volunteer Visitors

Aged Care Volunteer Visitors are carefully matched with a participant and make a commitment to visit on an agreed schedule. The visit times are spent doing activities that the participant enjoys, which may include activities indoors and out.

Louisa, a Lifeline Tasmania ACVVS volunteer.


How long have you been volunteering for ACVVS? 1.5 years

What do you like about it? I have been volunteering with Lifeline's CVS program since December 2021,  which was when I met Marilyn. At the time I was new to the area so I wanted to meet new people and get involved with social activities. Volunteering seemed like a good place to start and it turned out to be a great decision. 


Making an older friend who has a wealth of wisdom and life experience is enriching on many levels. We have a number of interests in common and share some very intellectually stimulating conversations.


The other reason why I appreciate the program is because it has given me the opportunity to contribute to the community and gain some experience with mental health support, which is the field of study I am undertaking. Having this experience is an opportunity to find out if I am any good in this field and if I can see a future in it. This is easily one of the best decisions I have made so far.
