Live the life you choose

The Community Visitors Scheme (CVS) is a free service to help older people maintain social connection.

Chorus matches you with with volunteer visitors who make one-on-one as well as group visits to aged care homes, and one-on-one visits if you are on a home care package. CVS visits are available to anyone receiving government-subsidised residential aged care or Home Care Packages.

If you would like a volunteer to visit you, you can ask for this service or be referred by your aged care provider, a family member or friend.

Who are the CVS visitors?

Visitors are people from all backgrounds who volunteer their time with local seniors, helping them stay socially connected.

All visitors receive basic training and must have regular police checks. Visitors are matched to a person based on their shared interests. CVS matches volunteers with Chorus customers for one-on-one visits to help reduce loneliness in the community.

Visits can be:

  • to residential aged care homes; or
  • to people receiving a home care package either approved or assigned.

How do I become a CVS volunteer visitor?

Chorus customers come from a range of social and cultural backgrounds, and community visitors from all backgrounds are welcome. Volunteering as a community visitor can be a rewarding experience. By befriending an older person, volunteers have a chance to make a positive to difference someone’s life – as well as their own.
