Make a positive change in your community

David Lee April 6, 2016

MERCY Place Shepparton is offering the chance to take up a rewarding role and help to make a positive change in the community by becoming one of their volunteers.

Volunteers at Mercy Place Shepparton play a large part in helping residents feel connected to the wider community and provide lasting benefits for residents and volunteers alike.

Mercy Health’s Residential Aged Care operations director, Voula Yankoulas said volunteers are valued as an important part of the care team.

“Volunteers at Mercy Health provide their own dimension of care. They are not substitutes for paid staff, rather volunteers who contribute to a multi-disciplinary team approach aimed at providing the best possible care for residents, their carers and families.”

For further information, or to express interest in volunteering with Mercy Place Shepparton, contact aged care lifestyle and volunteer manager, Karren Gooding on (03) 8416 7912.
