Community Visitors Scheme (CVS)
Providing companionship to socially isolated older people.
Live the life you choose
Approved volunteers can visit you if you are older and socially isolated.
Chorus matches aged care recipients with volunteer visitors, who make one-on-one as well as group visits to aged care homes, and one-on-one visits to home care package recipients. Any care recipient whose quality of life could be improved by the companionship of a regular community visitor can be referred to the CVS by their aged care provider, a family member, friend, or they may self-identify that they would benefit from such visits.
How do I become a CVS volunteer visitor?
Aged care recipients come from a variety 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 difference to the care recipient’s life – as well as their own.
