JewishCare commenced its Links Program in July 2006 on the North Shore and in the Eastern Suburbs to connect local Jewish volunteers with older members of the community.
The volunteers provide social support to clients who are living at home and may be socially isolated.
The support is usually by way of regular one on one activities which may include:
- Home visiting
- Help with correspondence
- Going for a walk
- Going out for coffee
- Playing games e.g.chess or scrabble
The Aged Case Work and Assessment Team often refers older people who are isolated, lonely and in need of a friendly chat to brighten up their day.
If you or some one you know may be of benefit from the Links Program please call First Call 1300133660
The program coordinator will contact you to arrange a home visit and discuss the program with you.
