The program

Having good social connections are essential for all aspects of health, especially as we age. Red Cross supports older people who live alone or who have few social connections, people with disability and people recovering from mental illness to help improve their wellbeing.  Red Cross provides daily telephone calls to check on the wellbeing of people who live alone and are at risk of an accident or illness that may otherwise go unnoticed.

The opportunity

Help support the elderly and people with a disability remain at home by providing a daily phone call ensuring they are safe and well.  The participant may be at risk of social isolation and will look forward to speaking to someone from the community.

A National Criminal History Check is required for this role.  Client confidentiality must be maintained at all times.

The impact
