Community Visitors

LCHS is currently seeking enthusiastic volunteers to be apart of our (CVS) Community Volunteers Visiting Scheme. 

The Community Visitors Scheme (CVS) works to match volunteers One on One with clients to provide  home visits to  recipients of aged care services. Clients are matched with volunteers  who share similar interests and hobbies and those who have similar social and cultural backgrounds.

The One on One Home Visiting Volunteers will provide regular one on one time with an aged care client in their home. The program aims to provide friendship and companionship and build relationships in the community and improve quality of life and well being of both visitor and client. It hopes to encourage the client to be confident and participate in activities both in their care environment and within their community.

Latrobe Community Health Service will support One on One Home Visiting Volunteers by offering training where required and assisting the visitor to understand the needs of the client and adapt to those needs.

This is a great opportunity to form a new friendships and improve the quality of life for residents who are at risk of isolation from the general community. 

If you would like more information on being a Community Visitor please contact the Volunteer Program on 1800 242 696 or email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

(Visiting days & times are worked out in conjunction with the volunteer & client.)
