At Bethanie we value and welcome volunteers in our facilities to share their time, interest and skills with our customers. Money can buy many things, but it can’t buy listening to a lifetime of memories.
As a volunteer, you become part of the Bethanie team. Your goodwill has a meaningful and positive impact on our customers by reducing isolation and increasing socialisation, offering services that would otherwise be unavailable and promoting a healthy community.

“Volunteer interaction with the customer plays an important role whether it’s through social interaction with a resident, running a games group like Bingo, or those who help with one-off special events. Every little bit makes a big difference and really helps to brighten the day of our customers.”

The Bethanie Group supports visitation and regular contact between residents, family and friends. This is fundamental for the ongoing health, wellness and safety of residents in each of our aged care homes.
We want to make sure this important aspect of our residents care can continue so we’re establishing a care partner program.
Care Partners provide support and companionship to their loved ones while COVID-19 remains an ongoing risk.
A care partner is chosen by the resident and they are usually a person who has a close, continuing relationship with the resident and visits regularly. It’s not designed for casual visitors or a visitor not providing an aspect of care or a visitor who does not want to assist with their care.
It is an agreement between our resident and their loved one. A care partner will be able to visit a loved one and learn new skills so that they can be involved in their care and have an opportunity to contribute to the ongoing care of their loved one.
The kinds of care and support which can be provided by a care partner include but not limited to: personal care, physical activity and exercise, grooming, massage, assistance with a meal, reading, music, accessing outdoor area, cultural support, companionship, social engagement.
