Darlingford Nursing Home is a 51 bed aged care facility, located in the heart of beautiful Eildon. It employs 74 local staff members. Residents range from low to high care needs, and respite care is also available.
What opportunities are there?
Darlingford operates a monthly activities program, which includes many games, craft sessions, cultural activity, movie days, newspaper readings, cooking and regular bus outings etc. Volunteers are welcome to complement and participate in this program. Alternatively we would love some new ideas and inspirations. Residents love visitors to keep them company, just have a cuppa and a chat or go for a walk in the gardens.
What benefits do volunteers bring to your group and organisation?
Visitors help to keep our residents connected to the local community. The activities program and volunteers gives our residents something to look forward to, and helps them achieve tasks and maintain independence.
