Our services are very highly regarded and our quality of care is consumer focused with an emphasis on consumer dignity and choice.

Our Community Visitors Scheme (CVS) also known as Adopt a Nonna or Nonno Program provides friendships and companionship by matching clients who are in receipt of a home care package or living in residential care with a volunteer visitor. Visits can be one-on-one as well as group visits in a residential capacity. Volunteering under this program can be very rewarding, it gives the opportunity to make a positive difference to the client’s life or the resident’s life. The CVS is about building companionship and friendship for older people who may be socially isolated or disconnected with their community.
