Volunteer @ BDH

At Boort District Health we welcome and value volunteers. There are so many benefits to volunteering for both the volunteers and the people who receive the support.

Volunteers show us how to live well and they strengthen our community through their acts of compassion and commitment. What sets health volunteers apart is their dedication to serve the frail, sick and vulnerable members of the community. They are integral to our health service and provide invaluable support to staff patients and visitors. Volunteers are ordinary people making extraordinary contributions

Volunteers work in a number of areas at Boort District Health including:

  • The Church groups of Boort who provide worship every week
  • Pastoral Care,
  • Garden Club,
  • Planned Activity Program, including craft and social support,
  • Transport to attend medical appointments,
  • Computer and internet tutoring,
  • Singalong’s at Loddon Place,
  • Regular patient visits,
  • Pet visiting program,
  • Meals on Wheels,
  • Palliative Care Support,
  • Community Home Visits,
